Dale Weise wants to come back to Montreal


On February 29th, the Montreal Canadiens dealt Tomas Fleischmann and Dale Weise to Chicago for Phillip Danault and a 2018 2nd-round pick. Dale Weise wasn't happy about that and he expressed his feelings about the trade.

While he was playing with the Habs he was having the best season of his career. Starting the year with a hat trick against the Calgary Flames on October 31st. Having scored 26 points in 56 Games with the Montreal Canadiens this year. We can say that his 1 point in 15 games with the Blackhawks isn't as great.

I'm not playing tonight, I'm going to the hotel, Weise told the road secretary who was worried that he was still answering questions with his equipment still on while the team was ready to leave.

Weise surely dreams about the Stanley Cup. And since he played 1 game up until now his name will be graved onto the precious trophy if the Hawks can beat the St. Louis Blues who are leading the series 2-1 and reach the Finals for the 2nd straight year and for the 4th time since 2010.

I was very disappointed to have been traded. I understood the decision, since my contract was coming to an end. I love the Montreal Canadiens. I love the city of Montreal and it's fans. I know the team's direction liked me a lot, but I will do everything in my power to sign a contract with the team in the off-season, Weise stated.

But Weise is also looking farther past his nose. He was dealt alongside of teammate Tomas Fleishmann at the NHL Trade-deadline. Weise is also missing the city of Montreal and most certainly the team itself. It's where he wants to be next autumn. He can't seem to find a chemistry with the other players on the Chicago Blackhawks' roster and because of that he has 1 point (an assist) in 15 games.

It's very frustrating, I have to admit. I know I can help the team like I did with the Canadiens. I know I'm able to score big goals, implicate myself, help the team's cause. But it's impossible to do so if we don't give you any chances. I played one game, 6 minutes and got no points at all. I try and maximize what they give me, but they aren't offering me much, the 27-year old player admitted.

In 28 playoff games with the Montreal Canadiens, Weise scored 5 goals and has a total of 10 points with the team. 2 of those 5 goals were scored in overtime against the Ottawa Senators and Tampa-
Bay Lightning to give the Canadiens a fighting chance.

Even though the frustration is eating me inside, I can't cry and whine about it. I stay a good teammate, I work hard during the practices so I can be ready for whatever gets thrown at me. I've always tried to be a positive guy. Jaromir Jagr recently stated that he was still learning stuff in the NHL. If he's still learning new things with all the years he's been in the NHL and all the things he accomplished during his tremendous career, I still got a lot of things to learn, the Winnipegger stated.

Do you think the Montreal Canadiens will sign the forward in the off-season?
