Remind me again of all this profit the Preds are making

They signed Weber to the offer sheet because they had no other choice. The team wouldn't even be semi-competitive without him, and even fewer people would go to games.

You're right though; no one goes.
You're lucky this guy pulled up the stats first. I would not have been as polite as he was. Please research a little before saying a team is a "failing franchise". We had our rough days, but not anymore.
