think carlson and kuznetsov for weber. i dont think there is any way for salary cap management reasons that mcphee could/would do that.

the caps could offer ovechkin for weber and poile couldnt do it. poile could offer weber for carlson and mcphee couldnt do it.
I was in agreement until you said Poile couldn't do Ovechkin for Weber. The Preds would be falling all over themselves and couldn't call the NHL offices fast enough to accept if that offer was out there. Let's be real for a minute. Ovechkin is a name and a face with worldwide recognition. In other words, a player Nashville would KILL to have.

Carlson + Kuz us exactly what I would ask for from the Caps (assuming no acquisition of big $$ players).
