they cant afford ovechkin, period. secondarily, they cant afford the complimentary players and ovechkin would be a waste in the style of play that team's budget dictates.
you are assuming that nashville would get the 55 goal MVP Ovechkin. its more likely they would get the 30 goal OV that we saw last season and would be stuck paying him $10m per.

so...no. they would not take ovechkin in trade for weber.

argue that if you want to, the fact remains that getting green signed would be as difficult for them as getting weber signed. if they cant afford to keep weber, why would they choose to replace him with green? it makes no sense. this is why they would want carlson. the caps could not afford from a salary cap perspective to trade weber for carlson.
