That's not the way things would go however. Weber is a free agent and can talk to anybody. If I'm a team looking to negotiate with Poile I've already called Weber and asked him if he's willing to sign a long term deal with us and what kind of money he's looking for. At that's at bare minimum. Honestly, if it were me I'd already have a contract agreed to, ready to sign once the trade was made. Much like the Flames trading for Wideman and then immediately announcing that he'd signed a 5 year deal with them. Did it really take them only a couple of minutes to negotiate a contact with Wideman? Common sense says not.
