Two underperforming superstars traded for each other? Logically it makes sense but it would never happen. Makes less sense from the Caps perspective positionally and I think Weber has slightly more value, though.
If the Caps gave up Alzner, who would they pair with Weber? Poti? Erskine? Schultz? Hamrlik? Green and Carlson are both right side defensemen, just like Weber. The Preds would have better luck getting Carlson than Alzner.
That being said, no way the Caps add anything meaningful to Ovechkin to get Weber. But the premise of this doesn't make me isntantly vomit like most Ovechkin threads.
Considering what Nashville has to pay Weber as bonus money in the first two years of his contract I do not see any scenario where they would trade him. He has huge value to the team on and off the ice and they are paying basically $28 million in about a year span of signing his contract. They will not pay him that and then ship him out of town.
