    Not only was he the worst forward on this team, he has the lowest DPPG and least RBIs of any forward or defensemen since 1917.

    It’s not a stretch to say that if Weal was removed from the team 7 or 8 years ago, we could’ve challenged for a cup by now.

    Well that is a stretch since he wasn’t on the team then. Like I said, I am in the minority but he has not nearly as bad as people are making him seem...IMO

    Good luck to him, I feel like we didn't give him much of a shot. He never had speed around him. He will be able to show what he's got in Arizona.

    especially at the deadline. This screams " im making a trade, beause i want to make a trade" . This is the beginning of Chuck Fletcher slowly deteriorating this club.

    No, this screams “I want to get a pick for a player who doesn’t help now and won’t be here next year”. He had little to no value and being benched for a few weeks wasn’t going to help.

    I believe some are really reading into this weal trade a little more than needed. The guy is a tweener.

    weal is worth more than a 6th round pick. Now is not a time to get good value for him. The trade deadline is optimal time to trade a player like this.

    Hextall got a 5th for a similar (albeit younger/contract controlled) player in Cousins.

    There just isn’t really market for those guys. They’re better players than NHL people give them credit for but they’re not seen as fourth line types so they end up really having limited options.

    I'm sure the market for him isn't large and it isn't gonna let larger when the non-playoff teams start filling their holes with superior buys. Someone was dumb enough to want a player that was often being healthy scratched so just take what you can get because you might not get another chance.

    This isn't like selling off Simmonds for too little and too soon. Weal has no value to anyone but you. ;)

    Thought he would return a 4th but better to get something than nothing.

    I like the idea of moving UFA’s early. If someone is willing to offer a 1st+ now for Simmonds, I hope Fletcher doesn’t drag it out and risk an injury.

    Hope he does well, but I hope this means more room for someone like Vorobyev to come up and play again.

    If I was playing in a game where the object was to maintain possession of the puck and skate around without doing anything useful then Jordan Weal would be my first round pick.

    other that that he's worthless.

    Great trade!

    Always loved that Jacob Graves. He's gonna be a star someday.
    (I have no idea who is Jacob Graves)

    Weal doesn't have a lot of value to a playoff team, he's subpar defensively and lacks great speed.
    So on a good team he can't play on the 4th line because he's not a good forechecker.
    And he's not really talented enough for a 3C role, as we've seen.
    He's more a depth player for a weak team.

    Given he's a UFA, and half the season is gone, he wasn't going to garner a lot, unless a player team had some centers injured over the next few weeks.
    There will be a number of 3Cs available the next few weeks who are better than Weal.

    Yes, trading Weal is a surefire way to take this club from the basement to relegation to the AHL.

    Don't sweat it, Bob. People love dredging up old posts to "I told you so", or make fun.
