I honestly can't see the Preds matching this. That's a lot of signing bonus right there.
If they match they have to keep him because they will dole out a lot of money in the first three years anyways so trading him after paying him more than half of the contract isn't worth it and you can't trade him for a year after you have matched.
Shea Weber possibly gone, Suter already gone..., I can't believe this happened to the Preds. I really feel bad for the fans.
IMO the best possible scenario for the Preds is to threaten the Flyers of matching if they don't take back the picks for roster players, then trade those four first round picks they get from the Flyers back to the Flyers for guys like Schenn+,Couturier+ etc.
I'm fairly certain that is possible. Essentially it boils down to Shea+four 1st round picks for Schenn++, Couturier++ etc.
