How can you prove that the Rinne contract is handcuffing them from signing Suter and Weber? You can't, thus your claims are silly.

The Predators aren't the biggest spenders, they never have been, but the Rinne deal isn't going to prevent them from making moves. They might lose Suter because he wants to test free agency, not because they can't afford him. And Weber is a RFA who will get signed, but we don't know for how long as he may also choose to test free agency a year from now.
How is that working out for the Preds so far?

Again, not talking about Rinne's cap hit, talking about the 7 years.
