Besides not being good value for a 2nd rounder, he would make a horrible pair with Streit.

Just because they are from the same country of origin, does not make them a good pair. Streit is arguably a top pair D in NY, going up against the top line in opposing teams. Is Weber?

Could Weber complement the lack of size of Streit vs the bigger forwards in other teams?

Streit, a proven NHL asset. Weber, a pipe dream, a wishful thinking-echo of Streit.

Your idea would be great for the Habs, and a disaster for the NYI. They would have to fall on their heads and be dazed to make that deal.
