Exactly. Poile should tell Webs "If you're not willing to sign, I'm going to have to trade you..which team(s) would you like to play for?" and then Poile should go try to work out a deal with one of those teams. Those teams would know that there's a good chance Webs would sign long term with them, and that's how Poile gets the king's ransom for him.

(note I say "should" and not "would/will"...)
