I made the same points before reading your post.

Kessel had the ability to sign with another team, dictate where he'd be playing.

A signed Weber, without a NTC/NMC has no leverage to be dictating where he'd be dealt. Yes, he may turn out to be an unhappy player on his new team, but would that be Poile's concern? Shouldn't his big concern, be getting the absolute highest return he could for Weber?
