Exactly what I was thinking.

Upside for Weber is that he's young, has a physical side to his game (yes, he does) and has that ephemeral 'potential' thing floating around his game. 'Potentially' great shot, 'potentially' good puck-moving skills, 'potentially' learning from his mistakes and becoming a solid D. There may be teams out there more than happy to bank on that potential.

Upside for Kaberle is clearer. Established D with legit skills that appear to be working just fine. Say what you will about his salary, the guy's done his job for us in limited games. Since this makes him valuable depth in the playoffs, any offer for him would have to be pretty good.

Thing is, neither of these guys could get us much alone. If a trade really is forthcoming, one or both of them would be part of a package. If it happens, prepare to be surprised.

Tinordi played well. Good signs from the guy. Unless Bergevin is cooking up a cool trade for a D in the next few days, I'd expect to see Tinordi back for the playoffs because... I'm not optimistic about Diaz at this point. Damn...
