What's the value in stringing it out? The plausible scenario there is what we've all imagined - Suter has said "show me your commitment by bringing in a top forward."

I'm not sure which scenario is real. The frustrating part is that both Suter and Weber have to know that Nashville will suffer more the longer they drag it out.
I asked the very same thing during the Kovy fiasco. He would publicly talk about loving Atlanta and wanting to stay. In hind sight, I don't blame him for wanting out at all, but I really wish he would of privately requested a trade or something way sooner.
