[Report] Predators Match Offer Sheet To Captain Shea Weber

237 posts in this topic

Swing and a miss for Philly. Can`t really blame them for trying though.

I wonder if this means Weber`s gonna be in Nashville for the rest of his career.

How can people "feel sorry" for Shea Weber?

Oh... Poor, Shea. He has to stay in poopy, old Nashville for at least a year and a day. In that time, he will become a millionaire 40 times over with his signing bonuses for this year and next and this season's salary.

Boo hoo!

IF PHI wants to trade for Weber next year...it'll be at full-value and not just draft picks. I would think it would be a better package than what CBJ got for Nash.

Methinks...the Schenns (Luke and Brayden?), 1st and a top prospect.

Unbelievable!! Just rebuild already, they could have just shopped the 4 first round picks for better players, or kept them and pulled a Pittsburg or Edmonton and build through the draft.

I feel bad for Weber too, he obviously wanted out, now he's stuck for atleast another year if not more. He can always demand a trade but who would take that contract?

BUT SHEA WANTS TO LEAVE..... haha poor him. He wanted a new start, but now signed with the same team for more than a decade now.

Yeah, it's going to be a long season for him and for the Preds. Imagine knowing that your team's captain doesn't want to be there and that he basically forced the organization to match a $110 mill offer for him

Can't they trade him next season though? He's not locked in to the 14 year deal with the Preds is he?

how would keeping 4 bottom 1st round pick help them pull a pittsburgh or Edmonton?? they have multiple back to back to back #1 overall picks.. picking 26-30th ain't going to help you..

Great, now Nashville will be a welfare team and teams like Canucks will have to prop them up.

Great... now this will bring up the trade Weber to the Canucks again.....

Clearly he wants out of Nashville, so he would most likely be willing to waive a NTC to the Canucks if he wants.

Wonder if the contract has NMC though....

Gillis was right. The only way to get Weber out of Nashville was to convince him to sign a one-year offer sheet.

Other than the threat of losing him for nothing, there was no way that Nashville was going to let Shea go.

Anyone else still mad about Gillis not offer sheeting Weber?

Meanwhile NY jumped on Nash, meaning Philly screwed themselves over on that front while waiting for the Weber match.

Haw-haw!

Unfortunately for us, even that option got nerfed when Bettman laid out the intent to raise UFA to players with ten years of NHL service. Even if the NHL only get one extra year of RFA, that means this scenario gets gets "groundhog day"ed until next summer...

Expected, but you've gotta feel for Weber, being stuck in Nashville until the end of time.
