It's going to be the same with Weber; the Predators have zero leverage to ask for such a package and they won't get it. It'll hurt, your team will have a major hole to fill, it may take some time to return to contention. But it's inevitable so long as Weber resists all attempts at re-signing... and the sooner Poile makes a move, the sooner the Predators and their fans can move on.
1. Weber has not demanded a trade.
2. Weber has to stay here for a year. We don't have "zero leverage".
3. Weber is not "resisting all attempts at re-signing". He and Poile are talking.
