I'd take either guy, for sure, but Weber is the better fit (more pressing need) for us imo...because the lack of physicality is the biggest weakness of our defense imo.
Obviously, Shero is looking for a top-pairing blueliner. Suter fits next to Letang, for sure. But imo so does Weber, because Letang COULD be moved to the left side and not really skip a beat. OR, we could put them each on one of the top two pairings.
I don't know if any of Shero's discussions with Poile over the weekend involved Weber, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did. With rumors that Orpik may be available, and rumores that we MAY be dangling Despres...if we try to connect the dots, those are two defensemen Nashville would have to get back in return (one would suspect) in any Weber package.
Did you just get the idea of Shea Weber on the Pens in my head? Why yes you did... *vinegar stroke face*
