I'm saying that if I were the GM and San Jose, a team who will be in direct competition with the Preds for years to come, wants Weber they had better be prepared to give. If they don't want to give up Couture then they won't be getting Weber. That's how it would work if I had any say. There are 28 other teams who will be willing to talk trade, and I'm sure at least one of them will be willing to give up something substantial. No need in Poile just taking any deal.

Forgive me if I'm skeptical of the value placed on players by HF Boards. How many people were saying Suter would get a $98m contract before July 1? No one. Yet here we are. Weber is definitely worth Couture, and probably slightly more. His contract negotiations aren't Poile's problem if he is going to be traded, so bringing that into it doesn't really make sense. At least not on this side of things.
