Hey guys, congrats again on the Preds matching for Weber!
For your guy's sake, I hope Poile has learned his lessen from this and will make sure any future situation with a player of his caliber, he will be a bit more pro-active in getting a contract done instead of just taking things on faith that said player will sign within his defined parameters.
That's ultimately what I think forced Weber's hand in going to get the offer sheet. Not because he wanted out, but because he wanted a contract a player of his caliber would have received on the open market. Obviously under current CBA rules that meant a retirement deal with large upfront bonuses.
Glad you guys got him, and glad you guys will be good for years to come! Hope to see you guys in the playoffs!
