I think going after Weber is a great idea. Especially now.
I know people will say that the Preds will match anything. However what does it hurt to make them pay more to keep him, if we can't have him?
I'd love to see Weber in red.
I wouldn't want to get in a pissing contest with the Preds though. Nashville usually has a lot more cap space than Detroit does. I don't know the numbers now, but they had 8 mil last October. They are more than capable of pulling the same thing the Islanders did with Nabokov.
Babcock's positive thinking... "I believe in being positive," Babcock said on Thursday. "That's how I live my life. That's how I deal with my family. That's how I deal with every game. In other words, I just think that I'm going to disarm the bomb. I've always thought that. That's how a coach thinks. Whether that's selective memory, whether that's being hard-headed or that's just not being that smart … whatever you want to call it, I'm just a believer."
