So what happens as the March 3 trade deadline draws closer and Weight, signed only through this season, is the attractive rental for a team hoping he still has something in the tank for a playoff drive?My Take: With the log jam of players the Islanders currently have, I will not be surprised if Weight is traded by the deadline, especially if his numbers are not productive. He's here for guidance and leadership, not to put up major points. There is no need right now to think trades of anybody just yet. However when the deadline approaches, Weights name will defenitely come up.
