Beauty, A

Weisss_1 Just a few days ago, JM said he wasn't going to offer the alternate captain vacated by Gary Roberts to anyone until next season.

Tuesday night, Stephen Weiss was wearing the A on his jersey.

The 23-year-old Weiss has been praised by coaches and teammates alike lately not only for his play, but for his leadership. I think this is a great move by JM because Stephen represents all the young players on the Panthers.

Giving him an official leadership role (the alternate captain is nice, but Florida has four of them) shows that the Panthers expect this kind of play, devotion and leadership out of all their players, not just the older players.
