The idea is that trading for Weber doesn't make this team an instant Stanley Cup favorite. We would have to make more moves AFTER that trade, and we'd only have about 5 years to do it while Weber is still an elite player.

Anyway, I can see where the talk of us overrating him is coming from. We sure do talk about him a lot. It's deserved though. 21 years old and he's already one of the most important pieces on our team. It's hard not to get excited by that.
