When Weber was being discussed with the Flyers the first time you guys wanted Schenn+Couts+++, which indicated you wouldn't be looking for a star center back, but one who could develop into one. That's pretty much how trades are done anymore in the NHL.

From my perspective, If Nashville ever moves Weber, it will be an indication they are going into a retooling process. Not necessarily a rebuild, but they would be gearing up for some offensive tools. You have the depth on the blue line that can sustain the group and grow together, it's just about finding that depth in your forward group.
And we know why he was traded ... that was an ownership trade, not a hockey trade
