It is hard to know, I guess. I'm sure Poile would have preferred to handle the Weber negotiations without a third party--but it is possible that Weber never signs a long-term extension (depending on what Nashville was actually offering).

There are all sorts of reasons not to trade with some teams (division, conference) and I guess personal animosity could be part of it, but if Poile saw an opportunity to improve the team by dealing with the Flyers, I'd think he would.

Anyway, I don't see why the Flyers would trade up to 4th. That's Barkov's slot on most lists, and he doesn't seem to fit a need worth moving other assets.

Can't see Nashville doing that. Too much risk that Vanek either walks or demands a massive payday next offseason.
