I get the point, but that doesn't make that deal any better. Boston was in a position where they were done waiting on Thornton to be their superstar that carries the team. They traded him for "value" of depth players. Weber is our superstar that carries the team. It would basically have to be like the Pronger/Shanahan deal, which would mean Parise is one of the few players that fit the bill. Weber may or may not want to be here, but the arbitration hearing is a horrible sign and he probably needs to be traded. I don't want him traded and I think it's bad to lose your captain that you were prepared to sink a whole truckload of money into, but it is what it is. Ship him out, give Suter the C and bring in his friend.
