Thanks.
Alright, but for the record I'm a Preds fan too, and have posted here too for a while. I especially like the re-signing of McGrattan and the current forward core. Keeping Weber is not impossible, it just would require the owner, Thomas Cigarran, who I believe has the assets for this, to fork over $27M over 1 year. It's not like Shea desperately wants to leave, or he wouldn't have signed a 14-year offer sheet when they almost always end up being matched.
