I don't think Weber would need to go nuclear and mess things up. He could easily sign with a tacit understanding that the Preds will boost payroll. He's really the first to be able to influence in this manner, in my opinion.
I dont think Weber is arrogant enough to throw out demands like "get us a sniper or Im history"
I do think Weber wants to see that we are committed to winning and I think the Fisher trade was a good step in that direction.
I agree. I don't think Weber's statements implied that he would be using his RFA status as leverage to get what he wants...he just wants management to know his goal is to win the cup, not be a perennial second round team. It was obvious what we were lacking in the Canuck's series...he just put it into words.

Well, that kinda fits the direction they are headed.
