Did Helmer get a no-trade or no-move in his contract? Wasn't really paying that much attention.
I was actually shocked that Nashville wanted a number one defenseman coming back the other way. They have one of the deepest back ends in the league and lack offense. I thought that Weber for Hall would have been a much better deal for both Nashville and Edmonton... and even Montreal...
What Nashville does get in that deal is exactly what Montreal didn't want... a player with personality. Nashville not only got a number one back... they got a guy that will put butts into seats FOR YEARS because he's a superstar.
Compared to Subban -- Weber's a cold fish, void of personality.
...not even bringing to light the fact that Weber is obvious decline.
