Anaheim-Bobby Ryan+
Boston- Dougie Hamilton+
Buffalo- Tyler Myers+
Calgary- Sven Baertschi/JBo+++ (not a good fit)
Carolina- Jeff Skinner+
Chicago- Kane/Sharp/Hossa/Keith/Seabrook (Lots of good options)
Colorado- Matt Duchene+
Columbus- Rick Nash+
Dallas- Benn? Erikkson?
Detriot- Zetterberg+? (Not a good fit IMO)
Edmonton- Hall+/Eberle+/Yak+
Florida- Kulikov++ (not a good fit)
LA- Richards/Brown/Carter (no one good enough will be traded)
Minnesota- Granlund+++
Montreal- PK Subban++
New Jersey- Adam Larrson++
NYI- Reinhart++
NYR- Staal+/Girardi+/McDonagh+/Kreider+/Stepan+ (tons of good options)
Ottawa- Not a good fit IMO. They won't move Karlsson
Philly- Couturier+
Phoenix-OEL+
Pittsburgh- Letang+
San Jose-Marleau+/Pavelski++
St. Louis- Oshie+/Tarensko+
Tampa- Hedman+
Toronto-Phaneuf++
Vancouver-Kesler+ (this deal makes an enourmous amount of sense to me)
Washington- Backstrom+
Winnipeg-Bogosian+
You need to consider who will have the cap space and financial resources to make Weber more than just a rental, and who will also have the assets we would like in return. That list will be trimmed significantly, as a result, down to something like:

Anaheim (a budget team, but reportedly went after Suter)
Carolina (did go after Suter, but no way they trade Skinner)
Colorado
Rangers
Flyers
Penguins
Leafs
Canucks
Edmonton (I just don't see this a realistic destination for Weber, but..who knows)

There's more than a few names on that list that I don't see any chance of being moved though: Kesler, Karlsson, Backstrom, Skinner, any of the Hawks but Sharpe, any of the Kings, Hedman...
