I would imagine Nashville would demand Couturier.

Edit: Im confused now. The original deal was Voracek and Meszaros.

Not One Elite or potentially Elite Part. I dont think nashville ever trades him unless he demands it and plays like ****, but if they did, think couturier to start.

Nashville is going to want either Couturier or B. Schenn, and a few other good assets.

My guess would be Couturier/B. Schenn + top 4 d-man + 1st round pick + something else

1. Nashville matched the offer sheet instead of taking 4 1st rounders. Your package isn't as good as the 4 1st IMO.

2. Suter is gone. Weber is Nashville's only top-pairing defenseman left. They can't afford to deal him away without getting a #1 defenseman back.

3. The value of Weber is much higher than any of the defensemen listed because he is not a pending FA nor is he demanding a trade. None of the defensemen listed are as good as Weber when they were traded.

This is a rather pathetic offer...I imagine if Weber was put OTB Nashville could get far better than this. I think Nashville would demand at least one of Schenn/Couturier++

Pretty much this.

Many many teams would be willing to give up so much more.

This ship has sailed. Weber will retire a Pred. There is no way that the Preds entertain any trade with the Flyers. Ever.

Jakub Voracek is just coming back from a lower body injury, and Andrej Meszaros is recovering from an achilles injury. Figured Grossmann was a good veteran option to have on the back-end to support Blum, Eckholm, Ellis, etc. while Read plays the role of Steve Sullivan.

Hahahaha no. Not close. Weber is arguably the best defenseman in the game, and we just paid the biggest year of his contract. Other teams would offer much bigger packages.

So an elite defenseman for spare parts? After your team offer sheeted said defender and Nashville matched?

I'm gonna go with no.

ETA: Use of Brian Campbell trade is pretty misleading. That was what the Sharks paid for 33 games of him.

I don't expect Preds to trade with Flyers in the future.

Chris Pronger sure as hell was better than Weber is now, or ever was.

I don't think the Flyers can fit Weber under the cap if it will be reduced. We have to resign Giroux in the near future. I also believe we could use someone like Suter more, since we really need puckmoving.

That being said, if the cap wouldn't be an issue, I'd trade one of Couturier or B.Schenn + in a heartbeat for Weber.

Nashville is paying him a hefty sum up front. No way do they trade him immediately after that. Especially not for Couturier, an overpaid 4/5 D-man and a 1st.

J. Staal brought back a better package IMO, and he certainly isn't worth what a franchise D-man will bring.

Weber is signed longterm. You have to give Nashville a reason to move him. If I were Poile, I'd want more.

My solution to the cap working (assuming we have a shortened season) is this: send Kimmo back. Frees up 6.3 mil for you, we get a stopgap top pairing D. Since he's a UFA, obviously that wouldnt work if there's no season this year. But hypothetically saying there is, it would take AT LEAST Schenn+Schenn+Kimmo+something. Overpayment? Maybe. But that's what it would take.

1. I guess it all depends on how high the Flyers finish over the course of the next four years. With just picks going back to Nashville, Poille probably had the same concern. Four low first round picks are anything but a sure bet.

2. When's the last time a no. 1 center, winger, or defenseman was traded when the return featured a comparable player at the same position?

3. True. He is not a pending FA, and he is currently not demanding a trade. However, Shea is not nearly the player that Chris Pronger was at the same time.

Note: I get there's no incentive for Nashville to trade Shea unless he requests it, or Poille sees that his club needs to retool. It's just something to have fun with.

A small market team has a superstar defenseman, so clearly they're just dying to trade him, right?

Nashville is not trading Weber for the foreseeable future.

I'd do that as a Flyers fan but frankly I'd expect more if I were Nashville. Losing Couturier really sucks, but if anything it clears the abundance of centers for the Flyers. with Laughton and Cosuins in the system they could eventually bump Schenn up to play on Giroux's wing. I'd imagine the lineups would look something like

Hartenll - Giroux - Voracek
Simmonds - Schenn - Briere
Fedotenko - Talbot - Read
Wellwood - Sestito - Rinaldo

Forwards get weaker obviously, but still a good lineup

As for the defense

Coburn - Weber
Timonen - Schenn
Grossmann - Gus/Bourdon/Manning

That is a great defense, especially if Schenn comes into his own (which seems likely if Weber is there since he doesn't have to be the #1 guy).

Nope. I see a team with two all-stars, little balance, and even less depth. A half dozen teams have tried to win with that formula since the lockout ended and each time it ends the same - a half decade of mediocrity and then the stars pack it in.

Hell No.

First off- Coututier's Presence means the Preds would have to move Legwand, Wilson or Smith none of which is likely to happen.

Second- With Suter gone there's no way the Preds give up Weber unless the're being overcompensated (I'm talking 2 young, proven, top 4 defensive defenceman with some offensive upside.
Example- Ryan McDonaugh and Marc Staal If a deal was done with the Rangers. and that's just a minimum. )

lol, Preds isn't trading with Flyers.

In the remote case it happened think about both schenn's + top-6 forward/top-4 defender + pick/prospect
Or in other words, a super overpayment

Just because the Preds depth players don't get the publicity of big markets doesn't mean we don't have depth. You're also a bit spoiled in Philadelphia.

Erat-Fisher-SK
Hornqvist-Legwand-Wilson
Bourque-Smith-Halischuk
Spaling-Gaustad-Yip

Weber-Josi
Klein-Hannan/Ellis/Blum
Ellis/Gill/Blum

We are fine with that depth and that balance. FYI, the Preds were 8th in goals for last year. We had the #1 Power Play in the league, so our offense seems to be working all right. Sure, losing Suter hurt our D depth, but trading Weber and getting only Mezaros back on D won't fix that.

The Preds have all kinds of issues. We need a true top line scoring threat, our defense is a bit young, and we lack a true #2 now (though Josi is close), but depth and balance are NOT two of our issues, not to mention the proposed deal would fix neither of them, even if it was. Losing our only top pairind D creates a much bigger hole than you're filling.

Weber isn't for trade. It would likely take Giroux being on the table to get more than a "no thanks, don't ask again".
