They have an internal cap, and the ownership may not be able to afford the bonuses on Weber's deal


any idea what the internal cap is? this is a different situation.......it is Nashville star player........I sure owner can do something to prevent this.....

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

Completely agree. Either Philly destroys their future team, or Weber is stuck in NSH.

Nashville got utterly raped hard since the 2nd round of the Playoffs.

-Andrei Kostitsyn and Alex Radulov drink their way back to Russia. After years of waiting for Radulov and trading assets for Kostitsyn, they both screw Poile over.

-Suter signs in Minnesota

-Now if Weber leaves, they're finished.

The future in Vancouver just died a little, imo.

Window has two to three years left and then it's '07-'12 Edmonton time for the next five years.


Maybe MG tried to sign Weber to the same offer sheet as Holmgren and Weber sees exactly what you do. So he chose Philly who have a very bright window with lots of young stars on the roster mixed with a bunch of veterans.

Makes no sense.

Nashville will match and then Weber is stuck there.

Guys. Nashville isn't going to Match this. There has to be something else involved. Weber and Homer aren't that stupid. This contract will be frontloaded so hard Nashville wont be able to match.

And as I said

http://www.pensionpl...le-offer-sheets

Ok, so Dreger said 'upwards' of $100M. I would be 4 - 1st round pick compensation if the deal was $119M or more.
So if it's under that amount, then compensation is only "Two 1st Round Picks, 2nd, 3rd" as per article. Gillis has a 1st rounder next yr and could get one in a Lu deal. Yowsa.

But as some have said, Weber can still demand a trade next yr. But if he signs an offer sheet and Nashville doesn't match, isn't he bound to that 14 yr contract starting next season? What's going on in the world today.

Well I guess we have to wait way longer now for an elite defenseman to play for the Canucks.

He was obviously wanting to get this kind of contract before the NHL gets rid of it.

I doubt MG offered an offer sheet. He cares to much about what the other GMs think about him. He is not one for the bold move.

I love Poile, he's as honest as an NHL GM could be but if NSH loses Weber Poile should be fired. He lost Hamhuis and Suter without anything in return. Now he's on the verge of losing the best Dman in the world. If I'm ownership (I wish) I hold Poile responsible.

Unfortunately, I don't see Weber being close to Pronger. It's too bad Pronger isn't healthy anymore or else, they'd look good. If Philly is able to pull this off, they'll have a 2 year window to win a cup, then their main core will all need raises.

Honestly, I see Nashville matching. Webs is probably going to be a pred for the rest of his life. Good job.

I agree, i think Nashville's owner will make an exception to hold to Weber.
Franchise defencemen like Weber dont come to often...

Nashville will match this even with money problems


CBA expires September 15th so as long as those last 3 or 4 years have decent money, should be ok.

Holmgren has balls, Gillis doesn't...f*ck I love Philly.


wtf dude, I assume 28 other gm's don't have balls then? WTF is your problem.

Worst case Nashville takes the 2 1st 2nd and 3rd round picks.

They are back against the wall.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

 

1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares

 

http://bleacherrepor...d-top-prospects

combine results.  Ehlers 5'11 162 lbs of solid rock.

Other than the offer sheet he sent to David Backes in his first few months as GM.

Nashville is poor. It cant be Poiles fault to offer money he doesn't have

What they couldn't wait a year to do this? Preds will match for sure. Holmgren is an idiot or he is helping Poile out.
