Seriously, had he not, we'd have had to match a 12 year $102 million deal by now.

#Weber #offersheet @Ryan_Kesler Now that's an offer sheet Kes! Makes yours look like 2 three year olds bartering for the red lego...

It gives Poile the perfect out too. Now he can justify the huge contract saying he had no choice while otherwise crying poor. He no doubt would have learned that trick really well while Craig Leopold owned the team.

He wanted to get paid before the new CBA, simple as that.
