And I asked what if Weber wants 7.5m like a Cambell or Chara, do we give it to him? I think he would get atleast 7.5 on the open market. So for him to take 5.5m, he would be giving us a discount of atleat 10 million.
I think Weber knows he cant expect Nashville to pay him full market and he's obviously ok with that or I doubt you'd have heard all the positivity mentioned.

we'll just have to see what he ends up signing for but I wont be surprised if its 6 mil or less.
