With the rumors that ownership has ordered the Panthers management to shed upwards of $10 million in salary, Weegar can likely be acquired for cheap (a draft pick or Justin Holl). For the player he is currently and is expected to be over the next couple of seasons, that’s a deal you make without hesitation.
According to stats from Evolving-hockey.com and @jfresh, Weeger has been better than 89% of defenseman at 5v5 offense, and 98% of defenseman at defense over the last 3 years, by Goals Above Replacement. He was worth 2.6 Wins last year (and over 1 win in both prior seasons) and is a star player, essentially, just one without name-brand recognition.
