Fact is Nashvile will not give up Weber. teams will not give up a pure #1 Dman.

eberlee has some risk given he is under a long term contract and his season so far---was last year an anomolly for him? I dont know. $6M per is a good for a reliable 30+ goal scorer---but not for someone who does 15-20.
Even while being extremely snake bitten, he's scoring at a 25 goal pace...and it's not like Eberle hasn't looked good this season. There's a reason why Oilers fans haven't been getting on him. He's creating tons of chances. He's really just gotten very few bounces this season.

...and the fact is that Edmonton isn't trading Eberle either. This is all hypothetical. The Oilers don't need to trade Eberle. It's not like he's requested a trade so MacT is negotiating from a position of weakness.

Also, considering the Preds might be going into a rebuilding phase, maybe an elite Dman that they only signed to that huge contract so they wouldn't lose him just for picks is someone they'd be interested in moving.
