What Nashville Needs to Do With Weber

Article by Kevin Allen, good read.

Poile needs to handle with the Shea Weber situation the way that Shero dealt with the Jordan Staal situation: You offer the player the best contract extension you can afford. If he doesn't accept, you trade him, preferably to a place he wants to play.
It certainly isn't difficult to determine what to offer Weber: It's the Sidney Crosby contract of $104.4 million over 12 years.
The Predators can't ride the waves with Weber's contract negotiations the way they did with Suter last season. It's too disruptive to the planning progress, and the consequences for failure to re-sign the player, are enormous.
Losing Suter without getting anything in return was hurtful. Losing Weber after Suter could be disastrous.
It's a good read, you should all check it out.
