I wouldnt object to Weight if we arent giving up anyone on the roster or Eager. The problem I see with getting Weight is that he is another center. I dont think we need a center, I think we need a top 6 winger. I rather have Recchi or Tkachuk or some other winger available. Plus if you do get Weight, who plays with him? He is a playmaker and needs a scorer on his line. Both our scorers (Gagne and Knuble) are on the line with Forsberg which means you have to break up that line).

Handzus can be move back to center, or Umberger could make a good 4th line defensive center as he played the shut down role for the Phantoms in the playoffs. Richards/Handzus are probably going against the other teams best line anyway. If Primeau comes back in the playoffs, even better.

I would go with something like this:
w/Tkachuk
Gagne Forsberg Knuble
Tkachuk Carter Kapanen
Handzus Richards Rado
Eager Umberger Stevenson/Brashear

or
w/Recchi
Gagne Forsberg Knuble
Umberger Carter Recchi
Kapanen Handzus Rado
Eager Richards Stevenson
