I think 2a & 2b are intimately intertwined.
It seems Weber is a long way from the unassuming, ego-free kid we thought he was a couple of years ago.

I think the Olympics changed him.

I agree that the signing bonus situation has the potential to be devastating to the whole Poile team buliding plan.

If Weber is really going to hold poile hostage for not signing someone in this summers crazy ufa market, I have to question his grip on reality.

in the end, if there are really this many major issues with Weber, I think we'd be better off trading him for Parise, if NJ would do it
