Saturday's Dump & Chase: Still Want to Trade Shea Weber?

Christian Petersen

As if we needed more evidence, last night should make it pretty clear that the Preds can't trade Shea Weber. He's the only real difference-maker on this team ( as long as Pekka is still out), and he's having a fantastic season, even by his standards. Not only is he an elite defender, but he's tied for the team lead in points and has more goals than any defenseman in the league. That's somebody you build around, not get rid of. Obviously.
