And Nashville choose to sign one not both...they offered what made sense as a franchise and walked away from the other. Smart!!!
They did draft both Suter and Weber!!!
Weber's second contract was 3x 4.5M...Suter's was 4x $3.5M...Nashville is the model of how to manage premier talent. Chicago or LA via Keith/Doughty would have signed these guys to +$5M contracts after their ELS....Nashville got 3-4 more years out of these guys for less.
It can happen you just have to create an environment where players love it there and will play for less. Detroit does it every year...its about CULTURE!!!
