Thoughts on Weber


So, I was flipping around during the second intermission of tonight's game and saw some of the intermission report on Hockey Night in Canada. One of the reporters (I don't remember who it was) said that Nashville wouldn't consider trading Weber or Suter until the trade deadline and only if they were out of the playoff picture. So I got to thinking, what if that happens? What if deadline day rolls around and Nashville is out of it? What would you give up to make a deal happen to bring Weber to New Jersey? Or Suter?

I would go after Weber because I believe, right now, he is the best defenseman in the entire NHL. Suter is good, but I think Weber provides great offense with awesome defense and a blistering shot from the blueline. I think he could win the Norris trophy this year.

Now, the Devs will have to give up at least one NHL player, one or two prospects and at least a first round pick. I would offer Tallinder, Corrente, Mike Hoeffel and our first round pick. Tallinder is (obviously) an NHL player (and fills the whole left by Weber leaving), Corrente is an NHL ready defenseman, Hoeffel is a long term prospect and they get a first round pick.

What do you think? Is this enough to get him to New Jersey? Do the Devs gotta give up more? Who would you give up to try and get him here? Or would you go after Suter who probably wouldn't require so much to acquire? I am interested to hear what everyone else thinks about this.
