Take our feelings out of it for a second and if we were to add a kopitar or getzlaf type to this team and still have the others as our top 4 on d we maximized an asset an Jones can be the franchise of the team. I would wait to make sure he and Ekholm can handle the minutes and NHL and if they can you move weber.
If you move Weber you would need a D comming back. A left handed one would be the best. Bonafide top line centers are few and far between. We could get a really good prospect that could turn into one but not sure someone is going to move their #1 center that is already 100% proven.
The thing is Weber will not be moved until we have to rebuild. The Predators are not rebuilding so moving Weber is not an option because the only way to get enough value for him would be to go after young players.
In the end I do not see the Predators making any moves for at least another 30 or so games if they do at all.
