I disagree. He hasn't been playing his best but hes a valuable asset worth developing and I think the club sees it that way too. Why trade him for spare parts when we can keep him develop him and then get something for him or just keep him? He has talent and he just needs development time. Remember Pacioretty wasn't so hot either for his first ~100 games in the NHL. Weber just needs time. Don't trade him away and let him blossom elsewhere. We've put in 90% of the development here. Trading this asset away would be a very stupid move imo. Diaz would make a lot more sense because they got him for nothing, he's already 25 and doesn't look like he's ever going to be a #3+, probably #4 at best but realistically best suited as a #5-6. Get a pick for him. I think Weber has a much higher offensive ceiling and even has the tools to become equally as good as Diaz defensively. Emelin at this point is slowly moving into untouchable range. I like this guy more and more the more I see him play.
