For about the fifth time tonight....

Yes, we can match. But...

1. Weber was in trade talks, meaning Poile knew Weber was unlikely to sign here.

2. Weber's deal apparently carries $26mil in one year, meaning he signed a contract specifically designed to make it as tough as possible for us to match.

3. Yes, he didn't sign a 1 year deal, but it is very likely that is only becuase 14 year deals will be banned in the new CBA, so he had to get it done now.

If Weber was not being shopped and had signed a deal that was reasonable for us to match, not 26 mil in 1 year, I would feel 100 times better.

Still, we match for sure.
