I'd gladly give up about anyone on this team for Shea Weber, but that doesn't change the fact that Mez is a solid 3/4 player. I think that is what people are taking issue with here. Not the desire to acquire a top flight D-man, but the fact that you seem to be overlooking Mez's playing ability.
That and his inability to understand the cap. Pronger's hit isn't going away if he retires. He signed the contract over 35. Also I'm not sure if he has correctly valued what it would take to get Weber. I think the overall problem is his inability to understand the realistic relationship between place on depth chart/ability/cap hit.
