i see what you're saying but to me, doing nothing is the only true waste of time
It's not a waste of time if not signing him to an offer sheet is the only likely way of getting him. everyone's best bet was for Weber to sign as short a deal as possible and test the UFA waters. Then either sign him during that summer, or see if Nashville would have been willing to move him at the deadline.
