1)- The Preds don't have the funds to invest in this deal. If they did it would already be announced that they will match, waiting to match shows weakness in their position. NO possible good reason for waiting if they are able to match! By waiting it tells the fan base that they are limited in what they can and are willing to do, not the best message if you intend to match.
2)- They are trying to work out a trade but so far it isn't happening for them. Hard for Poile to ask for too much when Homer holds all the cards.
I predict Weber in Philly only question seems to be will it be for picks or a pkg and how generous PH wants to be.
