Dear Mr. Quenneville,
Back in November, actually November 5th to be exact, it was a Thursday night and I was out on a boys night out, including a steak dinner, beer and hockey.
While eating dinner we witnessed Dale Weise score his 8th goal of the season after only 15 games. Albeit the Canadiens were on fire with a record of 12-2-1 and the team was firing on all cylinders.
It was right there and then my friend JJ Maislin said "i'll bet you a steak dinner he doesn't hit 18 goals by the end of regular season?"
Based on simple mathematics, all Weise had to do was score 10 more in the next 67 more games that's 1 goal every six games seeing he was already averaging one goal every two games this was a simple easy bet.
Well needless to say, things went south for the Montreal Canadiens and Wiese was shipped off to Chicago.
So Mr. Quenville I write this open letter to you in dire hopes that with 15 games left in the regular 2015-16 season, and only 4 goals away from a tomahawk steak dinner, I was hoping that you could increase Mr. Weise's ice time for the next few weeks perhaps even slide him on a line with Toews and Kane at least until he hits his 18th goal.
Thank you for taking the time and consideration in helping both myself and Dale make our seasonal targets.
