Wow, you really think Weber would not get a QO? He makes no money. He's a RH shot, has shown he can score goals, had a very good OHL/AHL pedigree and is still fairly young. Him falling out of favor has far more to do with Diaz's solid play than anything Weber has done.

I don't know why Ellerby only went for a 5th, but I don't get most of what Dale Tallon does anyway. We hear all the time how teams want offensive D's who can play a regular shift, you have to think someone at some point will want Weber and be willing to pay a 3rd for him.

If you buy out Kaberle this summer, you are down to 7 D's+the Hamilton kids who may or may not be ready. Bergevin has stated several times you need as many D's as possible to get through a season. I don't see why we need to just toss Weber away.

Bergevin himself said Weber was a NHLer when talking to the media 2-3 weeks ago and wasn't going to just trade him for the sake of trading him.

You can use it in the summer of 2014 too.
