Trading away Weiss before he has had a chance to play uninjured for the Wings just isn't going to happen. You can keep suggesting it every couple of pages, but rational people realize we haven't seen what the guy can really do in a Wings' sweater.
Why not, especially if he can be swapped in a package with Kesler? Kesler could be a perfect fit for Pavs wing this season, and he already let it out of the bag that he wants to leave Vancouver, so Gilly may have to cut bait, and Weiss gives him a supposed solid 2C. Their contracts are tradable.
Edler has been rumored all season. While he's not the 2nd Coming, so to speak, he'd certainly add the puck moving element we've sorely missed. Quincey is certainly serviceable to Vancouver's system to satisfy the "hockey trade" portion of the equation, and sell Almquist as the next Rafalski, and those contracts are tradeable .
Throw in Andy to sweaten the deal so they can stack Sedin, Weiss, Santorelli, and Andy down the middle.
They move two guys who desperately need a change of scenery, both of whom could instantly make us contenders. And they receive quality roster players that can contribute as well as undervalued prospect AA.
It's a win/win and the contracts work.
Kesler denied asking ever asking for trade, per elliotte friedman
I heard Kesler's sound bite on the radio, but he can't admit yes to that question, especially after Luongo saga.
Ehroff has been asked where he'd like to be traded.
Bruins inquiring about Ottawas Phillips (doubt they'd trade with us)
More accurately, Erhoff was asked for a list of 8 teams that he would not go to, per Vancouvers Team 1040.
"Stevie Weeks...The last addition to the Mystery, Alaska squad, Weeks was a teenager who skated the towns frozen river every morning. On a team full of speedsters, Weeks was clearly the fastest on the roster.
Weeks play was impressive enough for the Rangers to sign him to a minor-league contract."
