Scroll to the bottom regarding Yannick Weber.

Honestly, I wouldn't mind the Avs inquiring about his availability. Right now the Avs blueline is way too slow and doesn't have nearly enough puckmoving/puck possession ability, and the prospects who could solve that problem aren't yet ready to shoulder the load.

Mind you, I'm not a fan of the guy...he's terrible defensively, but I wasn't a fan of Ryan O'Byrne either, and that trade worked out well for the Avs. If he can offer up some offensive spark then this team doesn't need to be a one-dimensional dump-and-chase squad.

Feel free to shoot me down on this, but I just can't stand the way this defense looks right now. Way, way too many of the same exact type of defender.
