Look at the contracts Erhoff, Hamrlik and Wiz got! They are OVERPRICED! Which means a prospect like Weber, even if not currently dominating, would probably fetch either a developed mid/high offensive talent or an underdeveloped high end talent up front.

The market trend is not something that will last forever. We should bank on it as quickly as possible.
This is what I was talking about. If we want a young talent we have to give up a young talent. Now, perhaps we can afford to lose one or two of the young offensive RH defencemen we have, and Weber is actually expendable. I can buy that. But that is still very different than what the other fellow said, which was to dump Gionta and Cammalleri in order to use cash to get other proven talent in its place (presumably also UFA talent).
