On the main board, proposals like this have been criticized by Nashville fans for not having any immediate offense coming back.

A big goal of the Nashville organization is to make the playoffs this year. Trading Weber for Carle and Schenn may make the team better in the future (provided Carle re-signs), but it doesn't make the team better in 2011-2012. And with Weber only an RFA after the season and the Preds therefore retaining his rights, if you're offer is going to make them a worse team in 2011-2012, what's the incentive for them to do it right now? They might as well wait till the offseason and trade him.
