David Poile openly stated that he regrets taking Weber to arbitration because of how it affected the relationship they had. As I said, I`d rather give the guy an extra 500 thousand than go through that risk. It`s not likely that Dubnyk was after 5 million per year, which is the only logical time to use arbitration.
