Nice to see other people know and understand the situation at hand. You simply do not take the captain and star player to arbitration, period. If Weber did not want to sign then he should of gotten traded. Nashville and its ?able funding should not be doing it any other way. Unless of coarse you are comfortable with paying what you are going to have to to get him now or except 4 late first round draft picks.

The way they signed Peka is how Nashville needs to work. If it does not work out that way actually get something for your investment/ Dont look like the laughing stock of the league and get 5 cents on the dollar. Simple business.
