Getting Weber wouldn't be worth it. We would lose too much. Weber is a franchise defense man and top-5 in the NHL.

It would take something along the lines of Girardi + Stepan + Kreider + draft pick (1st/2nd round).

I don't think people realize how much it would take to acquire a player of Weber's caliber. A GM won't move an elite, top-5 player in his position, for anything less than a huge return.

Girardi has a bad season, a good first round, and a poor start to Boston. That said, I'd advocate to keep Girardi on the team.

If we moved any defense man, I'd be more interested in moving Del Zotto. Del Zotto is an offensive minded defense man who just doesn't have the skating ability to be proficient in that role. And it hasn't improved since getting here, and I doubt it will.
