Including Coburn doesn't negate any positive about getting Weber, Weber is a better player. I'd hate to loose Coburn, but he won't be a dealbreaker.
So you wouldn't trade Schenn or Couturier for Doughty, Stamkos or Crosby? Right.
The Flyers won't be the only team bidding on Weber if he becomes available. Any deal starts with one of Couturier or B. Schenn. Look around the league and guess what other teams actually could offer.
Might sound crazy but Giroux for Weber straight up would benefit both teams the most imo. Nashville wouldn't take it because they'd have a hard time resigning Claude.
To trade for Crosby Stamkos or doughty it cost schenn coots+. Not worth it. Ok. Put Stamkos on a line with giroux if you wind up with no talent behind that you lose. Period. And that's trading for the best player in the league. Id rather have a core of guys through out the line up that contribute all over the ice than have a few superstars. Especially one we can get for nothing if we wait. Who says weber doesn't decided to stay. It's not worth it. If the value is there its there. But trading schenn and coots is just dumb. Resign Voracek, fill holes through FA and make a run at weber next July should he be available. Or Enstrom. I'd rather see what Luke Schenn has and what Voracek can bring I Girouxs wing before I trade half the damn team for one of Ryan Nash or Weber. They aren't that badly needed yet. I'd like to see how the assets we got for 2 guys that just won a cup do before we ship em all off for 1 guy a year later.
