I don't really see the point in dumping Weber right now, he's not going to get a great return, still fairly likely to improve and pretty decent insurance as a 7th d if an offensive defenseman goes down. If this year taught us anything its the value of having guys that can play in the NHL in the extended (7-10) depth chart.

St. Denis probably is in good position to be the 4th left defenseman though. Although a healthy Nash might compete for that job and who knows how NHL ready Beaulieu and Tinordi will be. Its much better to have a bunch of guys competing for spots than relying on unknowns.

I'd like to see Kaberle's cap used on a guy that can play 5 on 5 though. Decent chance there is a GM out there that values his assists enough to take him on.
