Weber/Nash can do one of 4 things really.

1.) Resign with Nashville
2.) Get traded to another team with an agreed upon extension
3.) Get traded to another team with no extension and test free agency.
4.) Not get traded, and test UFA(Suter, doubt Nashville allows this to happen again)

Only in condition number two is Staal+ being offered. But you say, "Why trade Staal for a 1 year Weber rental?
I feel that 1/2 are most logical/realistic scenarios. Some people don't understand that the new CBA could limit contract years. Weber can get a 10+ year contract now, but might only be allowed 6 years under the new CBA.

Weber could be losing between 10-20 million dollars if he waits.
