Holmgren either believes Poile, and the two reach a deal, and the offer sheet is then not matched and whatever other trade happens, or Holmgren doesnt believe Poile (or doesnt care if he loses Weber) and then we find out if poile is bluffing.
Personally I think the Preds will reluctantly match if the only option is the 4 firsts but would rather trade if something decent can be worked out.
Somehow I doubt their ownership group reportedly consisting of 10 people looking at the "bottom line" will agree to match..especially given the below info...
Hey but more power to them buying a McMansion and being house poor and then being foreclosed upon in the out years....
After last season, the leader of the local ownership group told the Tennessean newspaper that ownership members had been forced to put $60 million of their own money into the operation over the last five years, largely to cover losses.
