I don't think this is as bad as many people going to say it is.

Weber is 27, it's not old by any means, but Preds will get a guy who is 9 years younger in Seth Jones who could have as good if not a better career in the NHL.

Preds also get Stastny much needed offensive help up front which they lack.

I think this is closer than people think.

Edit: Also i know Preds give up Barkov. Stastny with the right line mates is a PPG player, where Barkov's upside in the NHL is unknown.

Same with Jones. I know his upside is unknown, but it's safer to say Jones will be top notch d-man in the NHL than Barkov will be a PPG center.
