Who could Flyers trade for Weber?

Pretend for a minute it’s June.

You’re at this summer’s NHL draft, which happens to be in Philadelphia at Wells Fargo Center.

Having failed to win a Stanley Cup once again, Nashville has finally thrown in the towel and admitted it should never have matched the Flyers’ outrageous 14-year, $110 million offer sheer for Shea Weber in 2012.

The Preds are up against it with the $68 million signing bonus structure and will have to fork out another $13 million.

General manager David Poile has stocked up on D-men all season and is finally willing to part with Weber for the right price.

It will be high for the Flyers, ready to do whatever it takes.

Who would you trade for Weber right now? And … would you part with defensive prospect Samuel Morin, who more and more NHL scouts are saying has a bit of a young Chris Pronger in him and is going to be a monster No. 1 someday.
