Do you make that deal? I'd say yes, personally...and I'm with most of you in not wanting to deal Weber. However...for a player like that...I think everyone has their price. It seems like we're having trouble getting Hall signed, anyway...so throwing him in doesn't hurt too much.

Thoughts?

I'd prefer to have Zetterberg because he's cheaper, younger, almost as impressive offensively, and not nearly as useless in the playoffs. He's better defensively and not as scared of physical play.

I'd be very curious to see if management would do it. Adding either (especially Datsyuk) would likely see us burst through our self-imposed cap. At the expense of a top prospect and a good young player (both cheap), I'm not sure how Leopold would feel on it. It would certainly make us a better club short term.
