I think we all knew Hamhuis didn't want to be here. We agreed to let him stay through the end of the season instead of trading him at the deadline (we are sometimes too nice). This scenario could easily play out the same way for Suter and Weber.
Maybe not as much with Hamhuis, but with Suter this past season and with Weber next season, you will still get a very good return at the deadline. Or they could accept the ultimatum and sign.
