The question is simple: As a Preds fan, what trade would make you happily say bye to Shea, if any?
What this isn't intended to be: it isn't an invitation to have other fans tell us these packages will never happen, it isn't a re-hash of all the issues in the main Weber thread, it isn't a debate about Poile, it isn't a discussion of our team's finances.
I've seen bits and pieces of this discussion elsewhere and it's interesting but buried in a lot of other..... stuff.
As for me:
Couturier and 2 of the picks
or, more reluctantly
Schenn, Schenn and 2 of the picks.
I've seen talk of Meszaros in the mix and, contrary to maybe most here, I'd add him in lieu of one of the picks in either trade.
I think Couturier is the one asset that could make this Weber situation salable to the fans. I believe he is a bona fide star forward in the making. I'd actually be affirmatively happy with taking that risk.
I'd also be willing to consider adding assets like Wilson to a trade but tried to keep it simple.
Neither is happening. Poile won't get a trade for any of those three here. Preds would be better off matching if at all possible.
