The only thing that really bothers me about the situation is that the ones who are going to get hurt the most out of it are Preds fans and they do not deserve it. Nashville is a model organization for the league and they do things the right way, I think their fans understand and appreciate that and were really starting to blossom as a fanbase. I'd hate to see a situation like this ruin that.
If Shea didn't want to be there in the first place then I hope Poile is spared the wrath if he doesn't match. The guy does a ****ing amazing job year in year out, and his hands are tied.
Actually, the ironic thing would be to match and then trade Weber to at the end of the 2013-2014 season for a king's bounty to a team he never would have dreamed of signing with. It would be two years of a little extra financial pain for the deal that would retool and reinvigorate Nashville for a decade.
