its really is fascinating if you can divorce yourself from the emotion as a fan... talk about high stakes poker.... if the Preds owners really can allow poile to match, then poile holds the winning hand and it will be up to holmgren to decide how badly he wants weber...

do you guys really think Holmgren is OK missing out on Weber?

If so, Poile obviously will get nowhere in trying to get players instead of picks.. but if he really REALLY wants Weber and thinks there is a chance Poile will match then he probably agrees to a deal tomorrow, don't you think?

as I have said elsewhere, I think the owners have told poile to see if he can get a more acceptable return and if its good enough, then let Weber go, but if Holmgren won't give in, then he will be allowed to match.
