Predators defenseman Shea Weber was named a finalist for the Norris Trophy, given to the NHL's top player at the position.
On Monday, he was named a finalist for the Norris Trophy as the NHL's best all around defenseman for the third time. His decline is maybe five or six years away, as blueliners tend to drop off later in their careers than forwards.

So why wouldn't the Predators deal their strongest chip to add desperately needed offense?

When the Predators general manager is asked whether he will trade captain Shea Weber, he says no. The scene played out yet again a couple of weeks ago.
The idea can't be dismissed automatically, however. While the 28 year old Weber is arguably the best player the Predators ever have developed and is one of the top defensemen of his generation, he makes $14 million per season $13 million of which must be paid in a lump sum.
"David Poile's secure tenure allows him to make a deal that would pay off down the road," said Mark Spector of broadcast outlet Sportsnet. "He could trade a nearly 29 year old defenseman for a 24 year old scoring winger, an up and coming defenseman and a first round draft pick. Frankly, a Weber trade is exactly what that organization needs an influx of top end youth and skill."
However, with Poile saying the Predators are in a "rebuild on the fly" after missing the playoffs for the second year in a row, and with Weber owed $42 million worth of bonus payments over the next four seasons, is the time right to trade him? Not until 2018 19 does his contract go down to a more manageable $6 million per year with no bonuses.
"It is often in the best interest of mid market teams to trade one star player for many younger players of equal value on the ice. This strategy reduces payroll and diversifies risk," Vanderbilt University sports economics professor John Vrooman said.

'Pay off down the road'
The Philadelphia Flyers, who signed Weber to a mega offer sheet in 2012 that the Predators matched, also have a solid group of young, NHL ready forwards who could fit with Nashville.
