If you think we're adding a cost controlled young top pairing defenseman on top of Ovechkin to get Weber you don't know the meaning of being real.

Who cares about declining stats if he's being used horribly. As long as he brings it in the playoffs, which he has every year I'm happy.

Weber makes 14 million in actual salary for god knows how long and he's had the luxury of playing with Suter his whole career.

nashville doesn't care about actual salary because the rest of the league pays for weber to be there

beyond that, shea weber is everything that ovechkin is not

...a defenseman?

I'm sure the league would pay for Ovechkin and another 4 million dollar player to be there too.

This thread has caused my brain to bleed. Box score watchers are painful when assessing how a player has been utilized.

No. Just... no. Why would we pay out the first TWO rounds of bonuses to Weber only to trade him for a guy who would be expected to come into a Trotz system and perform? Nashville has a known quantity in Weber, and he has tremendous value here. Ovechkin did fall off last year (though 85 points a couple of seasons ago is still damn good). Maybe it was an off-year and he bounces back. Maybe he just can't play in a system that doesn't give him absolute freedom.

I'd rather not pull the trigger on this trade to find out.

No deal.

(oh and I do enjoy the people who say Weber is struggling without Suter. It's been eight games, and he has looked perfectly fine in his own end. Defensemen are expected to play defense, too, ya know.)

Wait, what? The rest of the league pays player salaries in Nashville? ****, someone tell the owners! They could be spending all of that money on cool **** like bigger video screens!

Seriously, though, perhaps this is not the best place for a discussion of revenue sharing. Take it to the BoH forum where these kinds of comments will undoubtedly be struck down with less sarcasm (maybe).

Even setting aside current contract and payment factors, I'm thinking Nashville says "no ****ing way."
look at nashvilles forwards, then look at poile's record in drafting defnesman, i'd do it if ovy wasn't falling hard.

In a tight game in the playoffs I would rather have Weber on defense than Ovechkin at wing.

Ovechkin + Alzner for Weber + Radulov

Curse you, Radulov, for leaving. It would have been the perfect trade.

If Radulov would have stayed and played nice it would be a lot easier to say no to this trade. Seriously, say Radulov signed a nice long contract with the Preds agreed to play etc etc. What reason is there for Nashville to do this?
