You being a Preds fan, what is going on that we don't know about that is making these high quality players want to leave? I mean Nashville just came off the best playoff run had in franchise history and Rinne is solid in net.
I don't get it, the fanbase there seems solid. Poile must be a real *******.
Nashville lost players in the past due to money and ownership issues. It is a different situation now. Suter chose to leave because he wanted to play with Parise and be closer to home. There's nothing wrong with Nashville. This idea that Nashville is in a rebuilding stage just because suter left is retarded. Radulov wasn't welcome anymore and they chose not to keep A Kostytsin. The team is still very solid, even more so when Poile matches philly's contract for weber.
The comments that weber's agent made were his agent's, not weber's. Weber signed it so he could gaurentee himself a monster payday. He would have been an idiot not to. If he wanted out of Nashville like everyone here seems to think, then there is no way he signs that offer. I've known Poile for several years an he is one of the most diligent people you will ever meet, that is why he didn't immediately match the offer. I can't stress this enough, this is not the same ownership group from the past. The offer will be matched and Weber will be a pred.
