Simple answer, No! Bob may have to surrender his annual bonus if HC's profit targets are not met, and insuring the nut on Weber's contract is not something Bob is willing to do. To insure his contract for 3 weeks and 10 games, is 250,000 grand. We are not talking about a lot...but a decent team, 23 players will cost up to a cool million. And I'm telling you, that's why you hear the names of marginal players floated out there as being in consideration for the Olympics...just in case the IOC won't pick up the tab on the insurance bill.
