Other than the fact that Weber can't be traded, which makes this thread irrelevant but anyways.
From each teams perspective.
VAN: Ballard, Schroeder, 2 1sts for Weber.
TOR: Gardiner and a 3rd for Luongo
NSH: Weber for all that.
Now I can see VAN and NSH liking the deal, but why would Toronto do this? Hell, if they really wanted Luongo, I'm sure they would've traded Gardiner to the Canucks already, for that reason, this deal doesn't make sense.
Maybe if you restructured the Toronto part. Maybe they add a forward prospect and a lesser D instead. Like if it was Bozak+Franson, and a second. That'll make more sense, but I doubt Nashville would like that. Take out Schroeder and a first and add in Booth or someone proven like that, then I can see Nashville doing it. Change it to NSH getting...Bozak/Kadri, Booth, Franson (or similar guy), Ballard, 1st and a 3rd and that's a pretty fair deal.
Can someone please explain to me why Nashville "likes" this? Just...no. The best D man in the world for Gardiner, a spec, and overpaid 3rd pairing D, and two very late 1sts? Weber could get so much more than that.
Vancouver says yes. Nobody says no. Absolutely nobody. They get rid of two possibly unwanted contracts, a few late rounders and end up with the most wanted d-man out there. Weber and Hamuis would scare the living bejesus out of everyone.
Toronto politely declines. Leafs fans say that they don't want to let go of Gardiner. Burke probably doesn't want any part of that contract unless another big contract is coming off of the books. Can't imagine what it would be.
Nashville laughs their ass off and puts a giant neon sign out in front of their stadium which reads "we're not in the middle of a rebuild.
