I'm a cold hearted *******. I was the one saying trade Vokoun to save money because Mason was looking good.
Weber is a HOF quality talent. But if someone blows you away with a deal, then you have to think about it.
The questions I would ask are the following:
1) Does Weber make Suter better?
If yes then you keep him. If not then you have to ask the next question
2) What is the compensation?
If the deal gives Nashville a phenomenal set of skills and players and makes the team better, do it.
3) Who's coming up the pike to replace him?
Oh let us see, Josi, Blum, Ellis, COR, Ekholm.
It's a matter of values. Without Suter Weber fell off a bit. I was in the group that Suter is more important than Weber. If someone gives Poile a deal which causes him to say, "You want to give us THIS for Webere?!?!?" You HAVE to think about it. Binkies and hockey crushes are nice but the main goal is to improve the team.
