Trade him later under contract so he has more value, and if it's a low enough cap hit to avoid the compensation being 4 1sts then whoever gets Weber in a trade is further pleased.
If everyone knows he wants to leave, which would be shown by him only being willing to sign a 1 yr QO this year, then most likely teams will wait. Teams don't often use qualifying offers. If Weber doesn't want to return to Nashville after Suter leaves, then they probably have to move him before free agency.
