Analysis:

The Canucks are still interested in re-signing Weber, but didn't want to have to go through salary arbitration in order to retain his services. Instead, they'll try to bring back Weber on a more club-friendly deal, though several other teams are sure to inquire on the defenseman as well. Weber tallied 11 goals and 10 assists in 65 games in 2014-15, doubling up his point total from a season earlier.
