Guys, it's more like Weber has become redundant. I don't hate the guy, he's got ok potential and he's done well for us, but there are a bunch of guys I'd rather have than him considering the make-up of our team.
He may not top 50 points if Subban and Markov get top PP minutes(which Wisniewski wouldn't be getting if he was still here) but he should be a 35-40 point guy that plays about 20 minutes a night and can step up if Subban or Markov go down.

The part you are overlooking is that compared to those other players(Wisniewski/other skilled UFA's), Weber will cost peanuts in terms of cap hit(800k-1mil versus 5 to 6 mil).
