We don't "need" Weight at all. Given that he is an expiring contract, the bidding will likely be pretty high league-wide. I doubt trading the assets required will be in the best long term interests of the club.

This club has the stuff to compete with anybody in the league sans Ottawa in a seven game series. More importantly, they are only going to get better in the coming years. Blowing our load to try and make a run this year would be short-sighted. (admittedly, since Weight is a UFA he isn't going to hurt our financial flexibility but I suspect the bidding will get high for his services)
