The Habs have come to terms on a two year contract with Dale Weise.

When Dale Weise was acquired by the Canadiens, we weren't sure exactly what to expect from him, though we figured that he would be a solid fourth line player. As it turned out, playing for his childhood favourite team lit a fire under him, and he proceeded to be a key ingredient to the team's success in the regular season and playoffs.

Contributing offensively and defensively, not to mention agitating the Bruins into a frenzy, Weise has been re-upped by Marc Bergevin for two more years.

According to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, the contract will pay Weise $1.025M each season, a ~33% raise on last season's contract where he made $750K, and a nice reward for his role in the Habs' run to the conference finals.

While the Weise signing is in itself a good deal, it should indicate that there will be at least one player designated for the fourth line on the move, as right now the four players signed who play that role make a combined $9.35M against the cap, which is obscene.
