For this reason, for the most part, while I don't tear down most "non-traditional markets," any small market whose owners would rather sit out than play are welcome to go fly a kite and get out of our sport. Let the people who want to get serious, get serious.

Hold on, I am not anti-Nashville by any means, but they matched the offer sheet knowing full well what it meant in terms of Weber's payments. They weren't worried about money, they were worried about long-term damage to the market and fan base. They overpaid Pekka Rinne essentially because they just wanted to prove they'll give players money.
