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?
If a trade is in the air, Weber have a huge say in where he's going. See Jordan Staal as the most recent example if you don't like Phil Kessel.

Yes, we can blindside Weber and trade him to Jackets-eque team for the best return. But more than likely, if it comes to it, it will be be made known that either 1) Weber wants out, or 2) That Nashville is shopping him. If that time comes, Weber (his agents) will made it knows where he wants to go, both to David Poile and the rest of hte GMs.

It really doesn't matter. Weber is signed. Poile doesn't trade roster player, ever. He's not going anywhere unless it gets nasty.
