Look I love Weber but that trade would be full of dumb. Last I checked we are over the cap as it is. We'd add $7 million so then we'd have to dump a guy like Semin too with no one to replace him.
Those guys are good young D on cheap deals and are essential to have for salary cap purposes.
Caps just can't trade Backstrom. We are weak down the center as is so no chance of that happening.
