Weber's statements of wanting to stay coupled with his wanting a short term deal have me questioning his word. It seems he only wants to stay if the Preds make a 2007-esque spending run on name players.
I think signing Pekka and Suter would be enough to satisfy his fears.

Let me ask this-- would you begrudge Weber, a guy that could pretty much write his own ticket on any team in the league -- for being fearful that he could end up an island on a mediocre team? I said this earlier, and still maintain it -- I think Suter and Weber's long term interest in sticking around depends a lot on each other.
