Here's my take: Weber wanted to re-sign in Nashville, but Poile was being cheap. This forces Poile's hand and he now can't be tempted to trade Weber.

If anything this is Holmgren giving some tough love to Poile.

Of course I'll look like a fool if Poile doesn't match but to me this is such a no brainer.
Who even knows how far into negotiations they got. Undoubtedly, this is too good an offer to pass up, even if he knew he definitely wanted to stay in Nashville.
