SUNRISE, Fla. -- Stephen Weiss admits the thought has crossed his mind.
Weiss has been a cornerstone for the Florida Panthers for a decade, but there's a possibility he has played his last game with the organization.
Scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, Weiss will undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist in Cleveland on Tuesday.
"Yes, it has [crossed my mind]," Weiss told reporters on a conference call Wednesday morning. "It's definitely not the way I would have written it if that is the case. It kind of burns at me that this is the way it could be going out, but you know what, that's life sometimes. You've got to deal with the cards you're dealt."
