I don't see it though, I feel he finishes off his year here and maybe signs in either Pittsburgh, New York or Montreal for a one-day contract next year to retire.

Everyone wants a top 5 pick this year for this team. I've said it can be done even with us competing for a playoff spot. Weiss could fetch a 2nd round pick guaranteed and then Tallon could take our 1st rounder and that 2nd rounder and package it as a solid top 5 pick? I'd want more for Weiss but right now he's not impressing the buyers that may be interested.
We can't get a top 5 pick if we are competing for a playoff spot until the end. A 2nd rounder will move you up 2-3 spots at most. Plus, this year's top 5 is better than most years', so those teams will be especially loathe to move those picks.

Kovalev could probably fetch a 4th-5th if he gets a few more points. Last time he was traded at the deadline he returned a 4th. He still has those hands, he can still produce some offense despite being horrible in almost every facet of the game.
