I don't see how this could be taken as good news.

People have been trying to say for a year+ that the Weber signing will be a breeze and it's just a matter of time. Now everything points to the opposite-- Changing agents, Poile saying nothing is impending, Preds having to file for arbitration out of fear, which is a major bargaining chip for Weber's camp.

In the end it might be "neutral news", but as for now, I don't see how this can be good news on the Weber contract front. This is a fear-based moved.

As for the theory that Meehan didn't want to get a lower-value contract-- I don't think that's the case. He could have easily negotiated a 30M+ contract (on the low-end), and now he has ZERO. So I don't think Weber dumped Meehan because he wanted commission on a couple more million.
