Weber knew he could make a fortune and Suter did to and that is not even including both of the agents. No we could not see pearl harbor or 9/11 but by god it is common
sense they were going to get paid a lot of money and were not going to sit around and accept Nashvilles more than likely low ball offers. NASHVILLE MADE ITS OWN BED NOW ITS TIME TO LAY IN IT OR GET OF THE HEAD BOARD.
Preparing to pay a lot of money isn't the same as being able to predict an unprecedented offer of this type. It's funny how you could say there was no way of seeing Pearl Harbor or 9/11 when in both circumstances there were indicators that AN attack could happen but nothing that spelled out something of the magnitude of what we experienced .... yet you claim that Poile and the owners should then have foreseen the offer sheet equivalent. Yes, everyone knew an offer sheet COULD happen, but, I've yet to find a post on HF predicting Philly with the record bonus containing offer that requires $52,000,000 in bonus money alone between the signing of the contract and July 1st, 2015 (just under three years). Maybe I missed it somewhere.
The assertion of " more than likely low ball offers" is just more pure speculation on your part. The reports surrounding the Suter offer have the Preds in the $90,000,000 range before the Wild's final, and eventually successful, offer.
