If Moore or Sykora can be convinced to play on a 1 year contract for cheap without a NTC, I'd go for it. The team needs another forward. If we suck anyway, then that's another 2nd or 3rd round pick at the deadline. I don't see much of a downside.
I don't see any realistic combination of injuries that allows Weber to re-establish any trade value. Time to let him try to get his career going elsewhere, hopefully we can get a pick for him. IMO St Denis is an NHL'er.
Missing half a season to the lock out should only help guys like Armstrong who's body has been battered and run down.
I agree though Sykora would bge a nice addition as insurance for Gionta and Bourque and a PP asset.
Weber should be worth at least a 3rd or a "B" prospect. He has NHL experience, some success and is still relatively young, plus lots of teams are looking for d-men right now due to injuries(Tor NYI Ott Edm etc)
