Yes, the cap hit is better than Poile was looking at.

BUT, the money being paid over 7 years is 86M, not 63M.

THAT is over 3M more per year than Poile would pay over 7 years.

Still, Poile was prepared to keep both Weber AND Suter.

He'll match and allocate less to Suter replacement money.

I still say what he gets in return-- the ability to have all of Weber's prime years and then to trade him anywhere and anytime thereafter for what most assuredly still would be a bounty-- is worth it.
