Not surprising. The cost of the contract is less of a killer than giving up arguably the best d-man in the league for draft picks.

Nash will still have a good team with Weber, Rinne, Trotz as coach and an underrated offense but they might have to penny pinch elsewhere to afford Weber's contract so in that sense, them matching this contract could end up helping the Blues almost as much as if they'd let Weber go.

I'll be interested to see if anything comes of Weber's agents words of Weber wanting to play in Philly and that he didn't want to be on a rebuilding team (Nashville). I don't really seem them as being in rebuilding mode but I can't think that those comments would sit well with Poile, the rest of mgmt, coaches, some of his teammates, etc.
