Dale Weise

so many folks dump on this guy but he fills his roll perfectly.

I don't think I've seen anyone criticize Weise. His play in the the bottom six/even strength role he's suited for has been pretty great during his time here. The problem arises when Weise is played in situations which overwhelm his abilities, and that's not criticism of Weise, that's criticism of the coaching staff.

(Tortarella orders Weise jersey online.. tells the blue jackets to play more like "THE WEISE" ! B) )

That reminds me. Before Tortorella was hired by Columbus, he was doing studio analysis for the NHL Network here in the States. He was forced at one point to talk about how impressive Weise has been, and it was delicious.

really happy for him he works hard out there and it is paying off for him. he seems to be in the right seat with the right guy's

While I don't think he is necessarily a top-6 guy, ever since he came here he's always shown that he was better than the way he was used in New York and Vancouver.

Gotta hand it to him, for sure.

Just to put this Habs' team's shooting percentage in perspective, the active leader for career shooting % is Alex Tanguay at 18%. Steven Stamkos, one of the premier scorers in the game, has a career shooting % of 17%, which ranks him 2nd among active players. Wayne Gretzky played through one of the highest-scoring eras in NHL history, is the all-time goals leader, and finished at 17%. Dale Weise is currently above 22%. There is a zero percent chance of this lasting long-term...

I'm optimistic about the things that deserve optimism... Subban, Price, Plekanec, Bergevin, Beaulieu, Petry, Condon, Galchenyuk, and so on. I'm realistic/pessimistic about the things that I don't believe are likely to last. I love seeing Weise score. I think he's a great personality and it's fun to see a 4th liner have success, but at the same time, it's unrealistic to expect him to continue on this streak, and the numbers support that.

Not in doubt. It all depends on your definition of long term.......whichever way you slice it though, getting around 20 goals (and the sort of play that will make other coaches think about his line more defensively) from him in any one season would be a great thing for the team to have.
