They'd have to allow us to talk to him and we'd have to get some kind verbal agreement that he would sign as long as the contract was no less than x years etc.

Now I'm going to leave before I see the words "trade" and "Whitney" in the same sentence again.
Getting Weber would be a sign and trade type of deal, probably already mentioned but I am going to anyway, lol.

I wonder what it would take for the Preds to part with his rights and for him to talk to the Pens to negotiate a deal before the deal is finalized.

I would guess something like the Pens 1st next year, Despres, Martin, and Bennett?
