My favorite post on the Trade forum thread is the guy who claims we could have had Weber for a "little" more.
I think this is the likely scenario. They realized that if they lost out on Streit and then Timonen in the off season things would have gotten ugly really quick going into 2014-2015.

People also need to remember that Streit didn't start playing in the NHL until he was 27-28. He doesn't have the typical wear and tear that most 35 years old have that have been playing in the NHL for around 15 years.
