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.
First off Nashville never would've agreed to a one year deal and secondly Weber doesn't want that either because of the new CBA potentially limiting those types of contracts...
