Despite lack of points, Weiss still a valuable commodity

Stephen Weiss was acquired by the Detroit Red Wings in July 2013 and was expected to carry on his performance as the healthy, 60-point centerman he was as a Florida Panther. However, during Weiss’ first season in Detroit, he only played 26 games and was eventually placed on the injured reserve due to hernia surgery. That season followed another […] The post Despite lack of...

Detroit Red Wings: Dan Boyle should be top free agent priority

The Detroit Red Wings stocked up over the weekend on centers by drafting Dylan Larkin, Dominic Turgeon, and Christian Ehn with their first three picks in the 2014 NHL entry draft. Now all eyes are focused on the July 1st with everyone waiting patiently for the free agent period to open up and the chaos that shortly follows. Begging the question: who should be the Red Wings top free...

Three Wings in The Hockey News annual lists issue

The annual lists issue of The Hockey News arrived in the mail Wednesday, and Red Wings center Stephen Weiss showed up in two places that pretty much sum up his first season in Detroit. Weiss was second behind only Toronto's David Clarkson as this year's biggest free-agent busts and topped the list as the NHL's most overpaid player. Right behind Weiss as the league's most overpaid...

Detroit Red Wings: The 2014-15 youth movement

If the Detroit Red Wings stick to their long-term plan then the motto for this offseason should be “out with the old, in with new.” New as in the upcoming prospects waiting to be called up from the Grand Rapids Griffins. By my estimation the Wings will have approximately $10 million in cap space to spend this offseason. Can Stephen Weiss live up to his yearly $4.9 million contract...

Ken Holland comments on Stephen Weiss’ disappointing season

Stephen Weiss was a huge disappointment for the Detroit Red Wings in 2013-14. Actually, that’s a pretty big understatement as Weiss appeared in just 26 games, recording two goals and two assists, after signing a five-year, $24.5 million contract over the summer. It looked like Detroit found their second-line center, or at least a valuable member of their offense, but that wasn’t...

Red Wings' Weiss might have pushed too hard

DETROIT -- If Stephen Weiss could get a do-over for the 2013-14 season, he probably would. Coming to the Red Wings with a five-year, $24.5 million contract, Weiss said he tried to fight through his sports hernia rather than dealing with it sooner. "Coming down for the first game of the year and thinking, 'How are you going to get through the game?' is probably not the right way to...

Groin injury cements Weiss’ first season with Detroit a bust

When the Detroit Red Wings signed Stephen Weiss to a five-year deal it was probably understated that he was coming off a season-ending wrist injury in 2012-2013. Despite his cap hit of $4.9 million dollars it wasn’t fair to expect him to be the guy he was in Florida right away, but with Weiss’ track record it was certainly a reasonable bet that when he got caught up from his...

Visitor for first time, Stephen Weiss recalls Panthers career

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Stephen Weiss knows about the effort it takes to start over. Weiss poured his heart into numerous attempts to rebuild the Florida Panthers franchise. Since joining the Detroit Red Wings over the summer, the former Cat has learned to carry on through the transition at a personal level.
