IMO contract structure was the top reason why Weber didn't sign long term yet.

Regardless, considering the limited budget we have left for this season, AK makes sense. Even if we could get a Parise right now, there simply isn't room in the budget.
We're $15 million under the top of the cap. If we added Parise we'd be $9 million under the cap. We have the room to make a move like this if we so choose.
