To Weiss’ credit, no one is more aware of how he’s underperformed. “I haven’t played to my potential and need to figure out the cause of that,” he said. “I think we’re starting to narrow that down. It’s getting to that time now where you have to stop worrying about systems and where you’re supposed to be on the ice, and just play. I’ve got to get it in my head to just play loose like I always have and I’ll be fine.
“It’s a different style and system we play here, there’s a lot of responsibility as a centerman, and sometimes you can get stuck in the mud out there trying to be too positional, and I think that’s been the case at times. The goal going forward is to scratch that mindset and go out and play and if you mess up, you mess up.”
So, what does Weiss need to do to find his game again?
Would playing with Datsyuk help or perhaps just going out and playing hockey instead of worrying about positioning, make the game fun again.
Any other suggestions?

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
