I heard someone say (as justification for TB not qualifying Pouliot) that under the new CBA, teams can't walk away from any arbitration award under $3.5m...which Weber's would surely be. So if they don't qualify him, he loses his arbitration rights, and can be signed for cheaper than his QO/arbitration award. As I understand it.
