In my opinion, goalie is the most important position in the current NHL followed closely by center. I would not even think about trading Stepan at this point unless it was a steal for another, better center on an equally nice deal. He's all this team has in terms of top 6 centers and they drafted him. Trading him and Staal-Girardi for Weber is a bad, bad idea in my eyes. I'd rather have Staal and Girardi and at least one competent top 6 center than have Weber and absolutely nothing of any value up the middle. The gap between Staal and Weber isn't nearly as big as the gap between Stepan and whatever poor soul would be looked at to provide consistent scoring as a top 6 center.

Again, the team needs another player like Stepan, a borderline 1/2 C. Getting that would make the roster pretty strong all around IMO, especially with the kids in the pipeline. The propose Weber trade would open some serious holes, both at center and at the bottom of the D.
