I would be willing to bet that everyone does what is best for them improves their life when the chance is there. I believe these two guys want to win a cup and be on a winning team as that is the ultimate goal of an NHL hockey player. You cannot blame either one of them for being careful with their future since wherever they sign they will likely end their careers there. I also do not have a problem with them letting Poile know what direction they would like to see the team go in. No one knows exactly what was said or asked for. I doubt anything was demanded because both men seem like stand up guys. I think everyone knows this team is on the brink of being a top team and if Weber, Suiter sign with Peks we have about a 5 year window to bring a Stanley down broadway. I think if the management, Poile, and Trotz play it smart and get that missing piece in Smashville it could be very fun in Smashville this spring, even better than last year.

So much wrong with this post.

Guess you don't remember the 06/07 team, or the first playoff team in 03/04? Those teams put the Nashville Predators on the map. This team was here before suter and weber and they'll be here after.

5 years will not be the end of their careers.
