I'd take the risk on this one.

Weiss has shown a lot of devotion to the team. He undoubtedly doesn't want the distraction during the season because he wants the Panthers to return to the playoffs (should a season actually happen, which is looking less and less likely each time one of these whirlwind negotiating sessions ends up going nowhere) and doesn't want to take the chance that the process leaves him feeling a little bitter toward the team, or perhaps more that fans question his play at every turn thinking he's playing poorly because he doesn't like the Panthers' offer or some such.

Yeah, we could lose him...but it's a rare case I'd roll the dice on it. Perhaps showing him that kind of loyalty is repaid in kind in the negotiations and he accepts a little less.
