The pipe dream that was Shea Weber

66 posts in this topic

Paul Holmgren just crushed the wet dreams of thousands of Cancuks fans with the offer sheet signing of Shea Weber at a very high cost, which reportadley includes 56 million over the first 4 years, 20 million over the following two, 6 per for the next four, and a cap circumventing amount to finish the deal out.

I think its apparant that there is zero chance now of Weber becoming a Canuck any time soon. So what now?

I knew we weren't gonna get him anyways.

If Edler plays well next season, I think we should re-sign him, if he screws up, deal him at the deadline for a top 6 forward or another young d-man.

move on.

The garrison deal looks so ever good now. I was just browing through next year list of UFA defencemens.

It's not very good. There are no good 27 or 28 year old dmans out there, and now then weber is off the list, it's that much more worst. Weber out of the Western conference is a benefit to us. We move on.

Why is it over??? The Preds can still trade his rights before they sign him (not after mind you). They could trade him to the Canucks for Edler, Ballard, Raymond and 2 firsts or something like that. Then we accept the offer sheet.

Don't be surprised if this is what Poile does cause the terms are set now get on with the bidding war.

I say go after him!!!

I never tempted myself to think we would get him. But I think this offer sheet is rediculous.

For

Erik Gudbranson

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Edler - Gudbranson

what do you expect when your gm is more concerned about landing big game tuna than big game hockey players....

Why are you people so depressed? It's not like he was ever coming here, regardless of how many proposals you create I do not believe Shea Weber had any interest in coming here.

I'll be looking forward to the Pennsylvania rivalry next year. Pens/Fliers are both going to be ridiculously good.

Weber at close to $8m cap hit for 14 years is nuts.

Our top shutdown pairing that got us to game 7 of the finals was making a combined $8M in 2011.

That kind of money is pure insanity. I don't care how good he is, with that cap hit you can't have enough decent pieces around him to win. After the new CBA kicks in Philly or Nashville will have an anchor to deal with.

Poile would not be a good GM if he allowed Weber to stay in the West, let alone to one of the top teams in the conference.

Although me thinks Poile will match the sheet, and that Holmgren did this to light a fire under his friend's a$$. Weber really wants to stay in Nashville. It is as much his franchise, as it is Poile's or Trotz's. Now Poile can break the bank to prove it.

Weber is a player that wants to get paid, first and foremost. He knows it and will do all he can to fill his gunney sack before the CBA changes agreed upon take effect.

As far as Vancouver? We still have one the top defenses in the league. Adding Garrison only makes it younger, stronger, and armed with deadlier shots.

Edler has to use this coming season (if there is one) to prove that he can be the elite defensman he is touted to be. Make or break for him. Hopefully he is the one breaking others into the boards.
