I agree he wants a deal like Suter and Parise's. My point is, that he needs to sign it this summer, before the current cba expires in Sept. 2012. Weber is not looking to sign a 1 yr deal with anyone, then to become a ufa in July 2013. That's too late for him to cash in.

The new cba will likely limit term and bonus $.

It does not sound like Nashville would be against giving Weber's a big bonus. Paying roughly $26m in bonuses in the first 12 months, is rediculous though. It hampers the team, making it difficult for them to make other roster moves.
