Damn. Figures I sit on a computer all day refreshing hockey news sites and when I'm on a plane something happens. Sweet deal for Philly.

I wasnt expecting to see this. I always do appreciate Holmgren keeping the offseason alive

If Weber wanted out so bad he wouldnt have signed an offer sheet. He just wanted to get paid under the old CBA rather than the new

You have to have a mindset going in that you are going to spend the next 14 years in Nashville. He clearly doesnt have a problem with that

I could see Nashville matching him then looking to trade him next season so they can get roster players rather than just picks

Yeah, was just going to come here and retract my statement/talk about matching and then trading him.

If the Predators decide not to match the offer, they would receive four first-round draft picks from the Flyers, according to TSN.

Um... what? No thank you.

The only potential problem doing that will depend on how front loaded the contract is. We'll see

My guess is it is front loaded to the max for probably 4-5 years with huge signing bonuses

And based on where the Flyers usually pick its easily worth 4 first round picks

The Preds planned to make a big offer for Suter, so they should have some extra money to spend on this Weber deal. I see them matching this, but how front-loaded the deal is could affect that.
