If his priority was leaving, he would have signed one-year deals until the new CBA set the new UFA age, and then left at the earliest opportunity.

This gets him inked under the more favorable current CBA parameters than those likely to exist under the new CBA, just under the wire, and it also gives a team he likes playing for the chance to match it.

I don't read this as a worst case scenario for Nashville at all. Signing his QO was a worst case scenario for a Predators fan. This move means he's OK playing his whole career in Nashville.

Chin up. Poile will match tomorrow. Weber gave up control for security.
