Unless I knew he wanted to sign an extension at a very reasonable price it'd be very difficult to convince me to offer a significant prospect for him. The Leafs don't have a short window and shouldn't be using assets on wingers right now.

Anyone else think Ottawa is a good candidate to take Martin's contract once his July bonus is paid out?  Gives them some cap with little money attached.

I think we let him pick where he wants to go and if that destination will have him, we just take the conditional 7th and try to help him be happy.

He'll be the new Chris Neil, perfect.

*clears throat*

If the Habs are really looking to rebuild this summer and they decide to unload Shea Weber's contract for a reasonable price, I'd look into it.

Something around Zaitsev for Weber would interest me.

And then expose him to Seattle.

I mean it depends on where his game is at at that point, but Seattle gives us a nice safety net just in case it starts to deteriorate. But I'd actually be fine with keeping him for the next 5 seasons, at which point his salary goes down to $1mil and we all know that there's no way in hell he's playing his final 3 seasons at that rate. Because of that his contract really isn't as bad as people make it out to be.

I think Babcock would really like having Weber.

I'm not sure he's a great fit here given his playstyle, but he's certainly a step up on anyone else we've got going on the right side at the moment.
