I think the truth is actually the opposite of what most people assume... instead of preferring Philly but reluctantly accepting Nashville, he preferred Nashville, but was willing to accept Philly in order to ensure he got the cash he wanted
Whatever helps you sleep at night.

This is a business, and Weber knows what side he's batting for now and for the next 14 years. You don't step on the toes of your cellmate the first day of a 14-year sentence.

I'm not trying to be mean, but I don't buy it for a second.

Honestly, it doesn't really matter to anyone but the Predators and Weber. He's going to get $55m in the next three years. He's a Predator for life. He might as well not exist to us outside of one exchange every year.
