If they sign him and bite the financial bullet, they'll want to keep him.

I don't know what you're talking about. My argument is that if they swallow the 2 tough years, they won't move him once the contract gets to be a bargain.
They trade him after 2 years because they're bleeding money and cant put a competitive team around Weber/Rinne and that is the earliest point they can get the kind of return for Weber they really need to return to competitiveness. Hypothetically.
