Horcoff on the other hand has minor value in a trade to a team looking to get to the cap floor. The actual dollars left on his deal is $7M with a cap hit of $11M. A team looking to get to the floor might be willing to part with a middling pick in order to pay less that the cap minimum.

On a side note, Richard Cloutier at Hockey Buzz wrote an article here: http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Richa...tzky/131/48512 regarding a trade for Shea Weber. While I feel his proposal is light, it does have merit. IF Whitney and Hemsky have solid seasons and get back to the level they were at before their injuries, I could see both of them being moved with a couple of 1st rounders for Weber. *I still think this is a pipe dream, but what else is this forum for anyways
There were rumors of Weber to EDM. Suter leaving ended those rumors.

And if Weber were to be traded, Hemsky + Klefbom and 2 1sts could easily be topped by a few teams.

After the offer sheet mess, I don't think the Nashville brass care where Weber wants to play. If they pay him any of that signing bonus they would expect a return out of him.
