The Florida Panthers are trying to sign UFA Stephen Weiss to a long term deal. Rumors are going around that Weiss does not want to re-sign with the Panthers and he wants to explore his options with other teams.
The Maple Leafs will be wooing Weiss if the meetings between the Panthers and Weiss breakdown this week. The Leafs want a #1 center and they are not sold on Tyler Bozak. Many feel Weiss would be a great fit with Phil Kessel.
The Vancouver Canucks, New York Rangers and Calgary Flames also have a big interest in signing Weiss if he becomes a UFA.
