Exactly.

If you look at the Weber situation as a straight trade, who would you give up to get the best Dman in the league. Look what we gave up to get Pronger, and he was old, and it was still worth it - his unfortunate injury aside.

Read is a great little player, but if it means getting Weber, he's expendable, and so are any number of other guys. I don't think the Schenns, Couturier or Coburn are, though. We'll see what Homer and Snider think.
