Shea Weber and the Arbitration
I don't know what is the deal with the Arbitration hearing with Shea Weber an all. It should of been announced awhile ago today at some point in the late morning time.
Sure, (coming from what I read) that the Nashville Predators want to try and fight over the fact of how they feel Mr. Weber is not worth more than $6.5M per season.

Even though I highly doubt that Nashville will just walk away from Shea Weber (but anything possible). But if Nashville Preds did, that it wouldn't look so good for Nashville Predators org..
Nashville Predators has lost enough really good players even over money because either they feel that they won't be-able to afford that player(s) salary due to being a small market team or they just too cheap. Who REALLY KNOWS?
That if Nashville does not resign Shea Weber, I don't see how any long that the fans they have left could still support them after knowing soo many players they have had before just let them go with players like; Paul Kariya, Thomas Vokoun, Kimmo Timmonen, Zidlicky, Hartnell, and etc...
If this team wants to get serious with their team, they have to show the fans they are serious about putting a team together and paying them what they are worth.
If it is because their fans don't show-up to fill-up all seats in the house, then they need better marketing to get them in their seats.
