    Imagine if the trade never went through? Weber with Ellis, Josi, Ekholm, etc? Subban with Petry, Mete, Chiarot, etc?

    How do you quantify a winner?

    This isn't the biggest loser where the biggest loser wins.

    You just don't go anywhere with players like Subban. Nashville was smart to figure that out.

    Yay, second place. Neither team has won a cup. IMO, it’s a draw.

    Neither the Oilers or Devils won a Stanley cup, so the Hall-larsson. trade is a wash. Impeccable logic

    But the Predators has had more success with Subban than Montreal with Weber.

    That's what happens when you have a much superior team.

    Saying the trade is equal because neither won a cup is stupid.

    The Predators. Subban played a big role on a team that got to the Stanley Cup Final.

    For a guy who didn't fit with the Montreal Canadiens organization, I think getting Weber for Subban is a pretty big steal. GMs usually lower what they are offering significantly when they smell that out.

    For Nashville? They got pretty close to winning a cup. Stacking your defense to win a cup has definitely worked historically like it did for the NJ Devils. It seems that they are going a different route now.

    I think both teams won. Trades aren't win/loss unless it is very apparent, they are a lot of pieces that contribute to the trade more than just the players/picks we see at the end.

    No, Weber and Subban are much closer in talent and impact on thier respective teams.

    The other two, ones a hart trophy winner while the other is an average D.

    Simple enough for you

    My biggest "concern" is, the fans who started to cheer for Nashville when he got there, will they cheer for NJ now that Subban is moved there.
    At least, We will see him more now that he's in the East. Weber is a bit older but they serve different roles.
    I know a lot of people will say MTL lost the trade, but I think it came at a time where there was tension in the room and when Poile called, the trade happened. A few years later, it was Pacioretty and Galchenyuk leaving.
    I'm glad Montreal moved on. I don't miss PK. He would have gotten on my nerves too. It was time. But, he was special!

    Both. Although MTL hasn't had much success, it isn't because of Weber. Weber is a strength to their team and the newest captain. Subban did a ton for Nashville including getting them to a cup final appearance.

    I'd say the season ended with a draw, both accomplished what they needed for the team (Stanley Cup finals vs changed team culture and became captain).

    I have Montreal as the winner just due to longevity.

    Nashville. A finals run does a lot for building on a fan base's support.

    It's true. They had more success than Dallas since the Seguin trade so...
