not me... I would have maybe settled for 4 years, but three(one of which was last year) is not enough to justify a Suter-like departure
lets put it another way... would you now give philly back their 4 draft picks to have weber for 2 more years and then lose him to the Flyers for nothing? Or lose him now and get at least some compensation, which can presumably be flipped for assets...
in retrospect, the best thing would have been for Poile to have let Weber shop for offer sheets last summer(which is apparently what he was planning)... they might have been high but I doubt they would have approached these numbers... but apparently the owners werent yet in a position to open the wallets so poile chose arbitration to forestall that....
