All in all i hope he stays in NSH because I enjoy going to watch the games best players here in the western conference.
Weber's rights weren't going anywhere even if the contract wasn't settled yet. Poile could take all the time he wanted to explore trade options before negotiating that deal. It's possible he could have even waited until after the new CBA went into effect, which I'm sure Weber didn't want to happen.
All this did was put the contract timeline on Weber's schedule, not Poile's.
