Note to Elliotte Friedman and other chuckleheads who think Weber’s deal with Preds can’t be modified: It can. Only the “principal terms” (how much and when and for how long) can’t be altered.
Why on earth Nashville would give Weber a no-move clause now is another question. Frankly, I would be more inclined to send him to the AHL and leave him there. If they’ve got the money to burn, that is. (I’m kidding, by the way. Mostly.)
Many people keep saying “well, he wouldn’t have signed that offer sheet if he wouldn’t also be happy staying in Nashville.” I’m not so sure. That was a nuclear offer-sheet, and I think it was put together to guarantee that Nashville would not be able to match.
