Weber has been a throw in in every habs trade proposal for a reason.
Also, if he had any real value, he would have been traded already. A lot of teams are desperate for defensive depth e.g. Philly.
or maybe he hasn't been dealt yet because he is cheap, young, talented and an impending RFA... all of which makes him a valuable depth commodity in case of injury.
don't put so much stock into what random posters offer up in trade boards... not too long ago that guys like Ryder, Halak, S.Kostsitsyn, Ribeiro et. were offered up as spare parts just because.
anyone who has taken the time to follow Weber's career, or watch him play at more than the superficial fan level, can tell you that the kid has much bigger upside than depth dman.
habs have no reason to move him yet unless it's to make the team better. i doubt they'll be dumb enough to trade him for the idiotic "5th round pick" type returns that some fans clamor for.
then again, we do have a track record of waisting promising young assets before giving them a real shot, hopefully the new management is smarter than that.
