on top of them, i like weaver, i have no issue with him. hes a veteran, been with the team for a couple seasons, good pk'er, and is veryyy cheap. hes an asset for us just because he's so cheap, as a 3rd pairing D, at that price, i have no issue with him. we just need 2 new D. i dont want kuba or jovo anymore. Campbell with Gudbranson longterm, Kulikov with a new D, and Weaver with a new D. trade kuba if you can (nmc i believe), buy out jovo in the offseason. we also have petrovic and matheson coming up in the not terribly distant future.
This. Perfectly fits my thinking as well.
