Because they didn't want to give up our core youth for 1 player? Are you serious with this question? You would have us give up Schenn and Couturier for Weber that's what it would of cost. Could you imagine what our offense would look like? I don't know what the Preds wanted from either NYR or Pitt but I'm sure they weren't about to accept simply prospects and picks or they would of taken the compensation. We offersheeted him because we didn't want to give up what they were asking for and didn't want to see him go anywhere else and we thought there was a chance the Preds dont match. I don't see the problem with that move either but I'm sure someone will find fault with that decision as well.
