It's not a crippling decision.

Weber is the face of the franchise. Some players mean more than just on ice product. Weber is that guy for Nashville. Plus, 5 years from now, Webers deal will be great value for them. It's a bit of short-term pain for long-term gain. If their billionaire owner can wrestle more control from the other partners, Nashville could see a major payroll increase a la the Buffalo Sabres.
