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+
Pittsburgh- Letang+
San Jose-Marleau+/Pavelski++
St. Louis- Oshie+/Tarensko+
Tampa- Hedman+
Vancouver-Kesler+ (this deal makes an enourmous amount of sense to me)
Washington- Backstrom+
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)
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...
