You wouldn't get Hall or RNH. I doubt you'd get the best player off any team (unless that team was just bad everywhere), or the only promising center on a team that has no center depth.

I wouldn't trade Weber unless he asked to be moved, and I can't help but wonder if that's happened --- maybe you guys can shed some light on this for me. I wonder because some broadcasters like Friedman on HNIC (by no means a hack) has talked about the Preds trading Weber. That offer sheet makes me wonder too, not because he signed it, but because it was specifically structured in a way to make it more difficult for the Preds to match. Why do that if it's just a case of wanting more money?
