Poile was never going to offer a front loaded deal because of the strain it puts on the owners. He would have gladly given him the $7.5/yr
Weber forced his hand due to the pending CBA.
It's kind of a low blow, but he used the rules to his advantage. I don't like it, but if I had to chance to haul in $25M in one calendar year, i'd probably do it too.
