In my opinion if he's in a line with good teammates and gets a good chemistry it would be a good possibility.

But also depends on how far Portland goes and normally they are getting far in the playoffs.

Our defense could look great at the WC, with Anaheim and the Islanders surley out of the playoff-race and the Habs also not looking like a playoff-team this year.

Imagine a team with Streit, Weber, Sbisa and Diaz. Add Von Gunten and we can still hope for Josi. Wow.

About goalies, I have the strong feeling that we may see Berra in NA sooner or later. He was a great prospect once, then struggled but is playing very strong this year.
agree with a lot in here, Berra is looking very promising

but there's still a bunch of players from Europe I'd take over Weber (but pbly not Simpson after last year disscussions) :
Bezina (though prone to stupid mistakes once in a while)
Forster (who's the best swiss D in Europe IMO, but he probably won't be there)
von Gunten (for obvious reasons)
Hirschi (smart, mean streak, solid offensive output)
and maybe even Grossmann (fast, gritty, smart) or Ramholt
