ESPECIALLY since if you look at that contract... 4 straight years of 13 million+ signing bonuses. Poile should've let him walk...
That's a tough choice to make because that's a massive payout, but you can't let one of the league's top defensemen go for draft picks. Especially after already losing Suter. Losing your top defensive pairing in one off-season would devastate a team. The only problem is that with that amount of cash tied in Weber, Nashville will likely go without true offensive talent again.
