Again, there has been absolutely no indication that we cannot afford Weber. It's purely speculation. We are $7m under the cap floor. Even if Weber wants $8m that would put us only a million over the cap floor, and it would make Weber one of the highest paid defensemen in the league. Money doesn't seem to be the issue unless our team simply cannot afford to even hit the cap floor, and then we have entirely different problems all together.
