I'd give up essentially anything to land Weber outside of Giroux. I won't propose a package because it'd be pointless, but any single player on the roster can exit if we're getting Weber (including Couturier, as much as I love the guy). The idea of getting Nash is silly. He makes 7.8 million and adds nothing worthwhile to our team. He can score, but we have plenty of those and in depth, not just one guy.

I think to fix this team, you need (IMO):

-1 defensive stud (Weber, Enstrom, Bogosian, Edler, Suter)
-2 pretty good defensive forwards (Malholtra type)
- Trade Bob to get a better backup goalie (Biron)
- Let Carle and Jagr walk. Jagr is too slow (despite great puck possession) and Carle will want too much $$

This team is very young and can be very good soon. We need to tweak it, not overhaul (except for a top D-Man with the exit of Kimmo and Pronger). NJD exposed us for not playing good team defense and we need to upgrade that in our forward corps. Bigger bodies that can play a little and be defensively responsible.
