Haha, I've got a conflict of interest in that I want Weber but I'll bite my tongue and agree with you. I think this could be a good trade for both sides, but if it goes badly, it goes badly for Nashville.
The upside for losing Weber for Nashville is that you'd be getting a lot of scoring, Raymond is IMO blue-chip and Schroeder is looking to be very special, but not a sure bet.
Weber is Weber, it's a sure bet for Vancouver, but there's too many things that have to go right for this deal to work with Nashville.
We have Bernier if you want someone that has shown flashes of power-forward ability, but his inconsistency is making him not worth the $2M he's at right now. When Vancouver complains about a guy's salary and we're willing to bury million-dollar one-way deals in the minors just to have playoff depth we can recall, you know there's issues with Bernier.
