And are playing Victor Bartley or Clayton Stoner as a 6D and playing your bottom pair for 12-14 minutes a night vs mainly 4th lines so all your top 4 have to play over 20 night in night out. Which is not a great strategy if you make the playoffs.

Trading for a guy like Weber is literally just 'trading your poison.' You are no closer to being a competing team really... unless you just trade away ~3 1st rounders + a throw in (if they accept) and hope he does not get injured.
That sounds familar circa 2010 with Lukas Krajicek & Ryan Parent.
