One more thing that Poile must think about is the potential to have a lockout this upcoming season. Although it's not expected to be the ENTIRE season, there is a chance that it could be.

If we lose another season of hockey, Weber is a UFA Nashville gets nothing. I think Poile is going to be forced to trade Weber before a potential lockout happens, and in enough time that the other team can sign Weber to an extension.

I believe the same think happened in New Jersey when Neidermayer left. He had one year left on his deal going into the lockout. After the lockout ended and they had lsot a season, Neidermayer immediately signed with Anaheim I think.
