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.
Ok - so Weber holds the club hostage monitarily and demands payment or he is going to Philly, but thats ok because Poile had a chance to match it and retain him? Suter, mentions he would like to re-sign, but goes to play elsewhere without the option to match. If Suter gave Poile the option to match but turned him down anyway, would there still be the hate?
