Since the Rinne signing today the Weber proposals and rumours are rampant again.
Could the mods please adjust the title of the thread to read "Canucks Acquire David Booth & Part + Turris Rumours + Weber proposals"?
Thats how we roll around here right?
Personally I don't really buy the idea that Nashville cant afford to sign their big 3 free agents. The main question in my mind is about the trio's willingness to sign there.
Rinne basically signed for more then Bryzgalav despite a very similar pedigree. His deal does not appear to be discounted at all and had he waited he is most likely looking at a very similar offer.
Suter in my opinion is going to get a kings ransom if he hits free agency so it will be interesting to see if he waits, or if he signs at a discount, or if the Preds break the bank on him (I would guess he could get close to 8 mill in free agency).
If the Preds get Suter for around 7, they can easily afford Weber, the main issue will be his desire to play there.
