Please name one such defenseman on one such team.

Edmonton would have to give up two of Nugent-Hopkins, Eberle, and the 7th pick just to get Nashville talking. They would probably have to add Hemsky and some deeper picks as well. Nashville literally cannot afford to trade Weber unless they have something insanely valuable to sell to their fans.

Trading Weber now won't actually save Nashville much money. They've paid a significant portion of Weber's huge contract up front already.
