Will we need to do the same with Weber?  

I don’t believe so - I’ve analyzed Weber’s contract - there is a massive recapture cap penalty charged back to Nashville if and when Weber elects to retire (assuming the nhl chooses to enforce it). From a habs cash perspective (not cap) paying Weber $6m for this year, $3m for next year and $1m for the remaining 3 years of his contract is appealing. Weber proved he was effective in the trenches of the playoffs despite a declining speed and transition game, he still plays smart. I personally don’t believe he plays beyond the next 2 years for $1m unless he is on a true contender. His contract is tradeable to cash tight teams with cap room, but especially to Nashville to minimize their cap penalty.
