Does anyone else get the feeling that Weber is doing the franchise a favor by getting his 1 year pay-day out of the way, and is waiting to sign a new contract based on what the new CBA will bring in terms of cap restrictions? All 3 of these guys know that each of their contracts are up at year's end - I wouldn't be surprised if they're all waiting on the new restrictions, being that all of the early reports indicate that the cap will go down next year.

For what it's worth, I get the feeling that Parise is doing likewise.
Any updated CBA wouldn't take effect until Sep 2012 (at the earliest) and I doubt that the details get worked out before 1 Jul. As for the cap dropping, every off season has the rumors that it will go down that year, then that it's staying relatively stable, just to see it go up when the year end revenues are announced.

I have no control over the negotiations so I'll just sit back, follow the updates, and not panic over every little rumor that comes out. I have enough stress in my life without panicking about millionaire deals.
