While I agree with you in your evaluation of Weber himself, I think many Ranger fans, myself included, are gunshy about puliing a deal like this that can gut the core of a team, after seeing it done to keep that 1994 magic alive all those years ago and seeing how that worked out for the Rangers.
It's a franchise altering move, there's a lot to think about there. Lot of potential ramifications, both good and bad.
I think there is a difference between trading for a 27 year old in the prime of his career, and regarded as one of best players in his position, and trading for a 30 something year old who is either a rental, on the downside of his career or otherwise an "experience" move.
To me it's apples and oranges.
