The Toronto Maple Leafs need Shea Weber.
The Leafs need a stud defenseman and Weber is the only answer for the Leafs.
Leaf Nation is in an uproar over the collapse of the Leafs right now. They are likely to miss the playoffs and something needs to be done in the off-season with their defense corps.
Weber is still owed a $12 million signing bonus this summer and with the Nashville Predators looking at a small re-build, Weber can be had for the right price.
The Leafs finally have some assets to trade. The Leafs would have to give up Nazem Kadri, Jake Gardiner, and a 1st round pick. Possibly more….
Cody Franson is likey gone. With Gardiner and Franson gone, the Leafs can add Weber and a defensive defenseman to help change the way they play in their defensive zone.
Without a big move, the Leafs will continue to fight for their playoff lives year after year.
