I wouldn't dismiss the possibility of a 1 year contract though. But I think Poile considers trading him if he's only willing to sign a 1 year deal.

Think back 3 years ago though. If Weber wanted out, why would he only sign a 3 year deal when a 4 year deal would bring him to UFA status?
If he signs a 1 year deal you can guarantee he is gone. Signing for 4 years the preds can hold on to him until that summer. This way most likely a playoff team will make a trade for him. before he has to serve 4 full seasons there and in the offseason take a chance on a team that might go far in the playoffs.
