I think Detroit and Philly will go hard after Webber but I do think he really wants to play here for a bit less.
I can't see Nashville losing another asset for nothing.

I think Nashville will do everything possible to re-sign Weber. I don't think he will even be available on either the trade or free agent markets.

Short Answer YES.. Its gotta to be Panic in Nashville right now..
Don't think david polle is not On the Phone with Shea this very moment..trying to lock him up..

Long Answer, all the teams with this small window for winning the Stanley cup will throw the Kitchen sink at Nashville for a RFA with 1 year Left on his deal.. and doesnt look to be re-signing..

and I doubt Nashville will trade weber in there on Division.


Edler + Tanev + Jensen + 1st & 2nd for Weber

If Poile and Gillis were in trade talks with eachother, i'm sure Poile would want Kesler
as the center piece for any trade with us...

Kesler + Tanev

Yes, without a doubt. MG has already said in his last interview with the Team 1040 that the organization is looking at the next free agent group in 2013 cause it's much stronger than this years....trust me, they'll be eyeing down Weber for sure! 1st priority for sure.

Isn't that a lot? He's an rfa. I could understand Edler and a 1st but not what you're offering.

I must say, I do feel sorry for Nashville. They're a great hockey town and the fans seem to love there team. It's too bad. I wonder if this is the beginning of the end for them? It's too bad.

The floodgates have opened. You've gotta at least inquire about Weber now. Whether or not Nash entertains any proposals is the question, but the timing is right to put your feelers out there.

We'd have to get rid of Ballard and Edler. Edler will want around 5 mill next year and if we want Weber (around 8 mill long term), we will have to get rid of Ballard's contract and Edler.
I can't say I would mind seeing
Weber Hamhuis

Why? He's a fantastic defensive defenseman from all reports and would let Weber jump up and add some offense.

People thinking Edler + Kesler consider this...

1) Why would Nashville want all that salary back?

2) Who's gonna play second line center and does losing Kesler AND Edler and gaining Weber make us better?

3) If you're going to lose him for nothing, doesnt getting a top 4 defenseman in Edler plus a first in the reportedly best draft since 03 make some sense for the Preds?

With all these crazy contracts, doesn't Ballard look some what appealing now? I'm almost don't mind keeping him. I'd rather trade Booth and edler in a package to get Webber. We have Jensen who could possibly step up and play in the big leagues. Plus whatever we get out of this painfully long Luongo deal.

1) They need to reach the cap floor.
2) I don't know, that's a stupid idea. We shouldn't be trying to jettison Kesler.

Not going to happen and no. Nash isn't going to lose him easy and teams will throw rediculous contracts around. Even weber isn't worth 13 years @ 8.5-9mil team would be willing to sign him for.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

I'm curious, as much as I'd love him, why are people so inclined to thinking he'd want to play here? I mean, yeah he's from BC but that may not be enough of a reason for him to take a salary hit to play here..
