Try to explain this to you for the 100th time. The assumption in a Staal+ for Weber trade is that Weber agrees to a contract extension with the Rangers BEFORE THE TRADE IS MADE. Hossa told all teams that he would going to test UFA no matter what. For that reason, his price tag was dropped and the return wasnt as good. The Rangers would never trade Staal for a rental.
Please try to read this part again...
"When we are talking about a trade of Staal for Weber, the assumption is made that Weber has agreed to an extension before the trade was completed." Not a single person here is advocating that we trade Staal for an unsigned Weber, but you can't seem to grasp that for some reason.
