I don't exactly know the Predators cap situations but if they have an internal cap 14M might be to much to pay him and might be better of trading him and using the money better ways for the team.

All that being said if they have to pay him the 13M before the season starts I can't see them trading him and his 1M salary during the season(unless they get a sweetheart deal at the deadline)

Nevertheless, Weber chose to sign the offer knowing the ramifications it might have. I'd fault him before Holmgren.
I still see it as a butthole move(basically giving Weber 27M to play 1 season before Nashville can trade him). It's basically a damned if they do, damned if they don't situation for a cash strapped team like Nashville

I honestly don't see the NHL giving Nashville an out on this(assuming they want to), rules are rules.
