otherwise you cant get him.
Poile has worked too hard to build this team to trade one of our "franchise" players for anything other than another franchise player.
And the problem is even if a GM wanted to trade one of those other franchise players, they are probably already signed to deals we cannot afford
I was going to say something along these lines yesterday, but I guess I kind of figured it was common knowledge. Other fans aren't used to having a self-imposed cap, though.
We can't afford to trade Weber. Not because we don't have other defensive prospects with tons of potential, but because we won't be able to afford what comes back. Start hoping we sell out our barn 30 times per season if you want Weber or Suter in a trade. Or hope our attendance drops so far we can't afford to sign one to an extension, but if you hope for that the hockey gods will cast some bad karma on your house. (ok so karma doesn't exist, but I'll be pissed at you anyway)
