That is a ridiculous argument. What if he gets injured? What if he has a horrible year? I would've rather spent the 500k to avoid arbitration than have to go through the process.

Am I the only one that cares about how the team is portrayed around the NHL and in Nashville? Seriously? Instead of getting weber signed we had to go through weeks of speculation and dozens are articles land blasting the preds for offering weber 4.75M. What does this say about our franchise? I know it is a negotiating number but that isn't what the media is going to report and casual fans who jumped on the band wagon aren't going to understand either. Am I the only one that sees a window of opportunity to be an elite team with the addition of a top six forward? The next 2-3 are going to be very defining for our franchise. Are are willing to pay the price to be a winner, or are we going to have to rebuild again.
