That's really hard to believe though. If Poile maxed his offer at $4.5M, then he never had any intention of signing Weber and avoiding arbitration.

And in the world of negotations, low balling is a very dangerous, often ineffective game to play and often results in egotistical fighting that pushes the two sides into irreconcilable positions. It would seem foolish to make an offer that could easily disengage Weber from negotiations and have him looking towards free agency.
