If Weber really wants to come to Vancouver, that is probably the best way to do it for the Canucks...
How does arbitration factor in? The team took Weber to arbitration last year, can they elect for arbitration again? I was under the impression they could. Nashville would be better off taking him to arbitration, signing him to a year deal, then moving him to the highest bidder.
