There's a lot more potential for nuance in these negotations than people are giving credit for here.
If he doesn't want to pay him as a top defenseman, then he should have traded him, taking him to arbitration isn't going to help, Weber was 2nd in Norris voting and first team all-star, he's a top defenseman, Poile can't argue that.

Besides we were told they knew what Weber wanted he was the core of the team and would be paid. Somone is lying...
