I still don't understand why a 1 yr deal could not have been worked out to avoid arbitration!
IMO Webber wants out of NSH. Its not about the money, he wants to be on a contender.

Next year Weber is a RFA but is not eligible for club elected arbitration. All he has to do is sign a 1year offersheet, NSH can match. If they match they can NOT trade him for 1 year meaning Weber leaves as UFA at the end of year. If they match NSH gets draft picks. They can get a lot more than draft picks for him right now.

Bottom line is unless Weber signs a long term deal by trade deadline he is gone in a trade. Poile has no other choice. IMO Weber will be traded soon.
