Any package involving both Kesler AND Edler would be ridiculous and Mike Gillis would never do that, and never did i propose such a dumb deal. I don't know what it would take to get Weber, but i trust MG in what he feels might make this team better. But it won't require Kesler as well as Edler. It would be Kesler or Edler in a package deal.
Thats just more of a reason to not trade them kesler, edler and half our future for him.. If he's looking for the home run Crosby contract then were screwed anyways because he won't resign. But we can however offer him a very generous(not quite Crosby money) long term contract in 2013. A contract with a team poised to win the cup(another reason to sign it). Not a team missing a great second line center and nothing coming down the prospect pipeline.
I see a great opportunity to add cup run pieces and prospects this summer by trading a goalie(something Nashville doesn't need so we would be sending key pieces of our team). We are still a top contender as is, why blow that and our future up?
Just because weber is awesome doesn't mean getting him that way will make us a better team.
What i was getting at is IF, we were able to trade for him, signing him to a fair deal BEFORE free agency would be better than trying to get him on free agency next year as he would have an opportunity to weigh his options, the price would sky rocket.
