NHL Trade Rumors: Stephen Weiss Continues To Be A Hot Name In Trade Rumors
NHL Trade Rumors: What Is Stephen Weiss' Future In Florida
Next to Bryan McCabe, Stephen Weiss is probably the most attractive trade asset the Florida Panthers have. And while there aren't teams banging down the door to get him like with Jay Bouwmeester a couple of years ago, he still has value as a top six center.
Both the Miami Herald and Sun-Sentinel in South Florida wrote about Weiss today and playing with trade rumors circling around him. Both papers named a number of teams who would be interested in acquiring Weiss including Pittsburgh, Washington, Montreal and Calgary.
Of course, it will all depend on what kind of interest he garners from other teams that will decide whether or not he'll stay. Weiss seems like he wants to stay and the Panthers will eventually have to do something in terms of making a gesture to the fan base that they want to win.
Now part of this too is that many teams aren't willing to take on Weiss and think the price is too high for a center who's a nice player but not an outstanding player, and more of a playmaker than a scorer. Even so, considering McCabe is also available at a higher price, teams are weary to deal with either of them knowing Florida will demand a high price in either prospects or draft picks.
That being said, if the Panthers have the right deal come along for them, they need to take it.
