Yeah, I doubt Weber gets traded. Maybe later in his contract, but not any time soon. If Weber wanted to be in Van, he would have taken the 1 year offer sheet Gillis proposed and come here as a UFA.

Why would Edler want to waive to go to Nashville anyway?

Ottawa doesn't take the deal in the other trade. Stastny will either get re-signed in Colorado or someone else will offer him a premium in free agency. I don't want Downie either, so I don't think much is plausible here.

While I don't see that package getting Poile to consider moving Weber, I can't see Weber being content with being on a marginal team like the Predators for too many more seasons.

I do see him giving it one more season and then asking for a trade.

Edler isn't waiving his clause any time soon or possibly at all, so using him as a trade chip is pointless.

For Vancouver to land him they would have to give up a flurry of prospects and picks plus a roster player or two that don't have clauses or are willing to waive to go Nashville.
