They are jackasses, but they know how to get paid.
The rumor is, Weber's agents took a HUGE discount on their commission in order to pry Weber from Don Meehan. They already had Weber's good friend Josh Gorges in the fold, who ended up facilitating the introduction.

This NTC/NMC is a big deal. IMO, the agent is pushing hard for a full NTC -- and at Weber's request. It hurts the agent's reputation, but that's part of an agent's job -- to be the bad guy.

If Poile accepts a full NTC, its a huge risk for NSH. Weber could conceivably demand a trade next off-season with little or no downside risk, since he would control the destination.
