I love Marc Staal. Own his jersey. The first 1st round pick to truly live up to the hype after a looking drought in the early 00s.

But if you can get Shea Weber, potentially the best defenseman in the game over the next 5-10 years, with a Staal + futures package it is a no brainier IMO. If the Jordan Staal pipe dream was still alive I would be a bit more hesitant, however not only is it not alive it is also a potentially serious risk at this point.

You want to improve the PP? Weber will achieve that in spades. Our OP failed to gain and maintain zone time because teams could afford to play us so aggressively. They will have to think twice with Weber's bomb and lateral mobility.
