Weber is a good offensive D-man that can take a regular shift and play the point on the Powerplay.
In no world does Yannick Weber + 3rd overall get the Habs 1st (Yakupov).
I'm not just saying that either because I'm a Leafs fan. The cost to draft #1 overall and pick a player that is a cut above everyone else is going to be more than most teams will pay imo. So, for the Habs you're looking at Beaulieu, or Tinordi. I know Habs fans will say this is ridiculous and overpayment, but that's what the price will be.

So, just because everyone loves Leaf offers, I do not think Schenn +5th gets the 1st either. I believe Schenn will rebound, but you're talking Gardiner + 5th to move up. Edmonton doesn't HAVE to trade down. Then can take the BPA which is Yakupov, by far.

Thats my opinion...teams will have to overpay.
