To me, those are the only guys that make sense. And to be honest, even though it's two players, I'm not sure I would trade Weber for Hall & Eberle. The other three are dominant centers that play solid two way games. Backstrom and Kopitar have done it for years now and Duchesne finally came in to his own this year..
Although Kopitar is great, he's 2 years away from UFA. We can't risk that.

Backstrom is a very good player, but I don't think he's dominant. He's had the benefit of playing with Ovechkin for most of his career. I'd certainly want him on my team, but not at the expense of Weber.

Duchene is great, but I'd take McKinnon over him for the long term.

I think Weber for McKinnon would be enticing. If the Avs start adding to that, all of the sudden, I think Poile would have to consider long and hard.
