FLYERS' INITIAL STATEMENT FROM JULY 19, 2012:

http://flyers.nhl.com/club/news.htm?...id=DL|PHI|home

Quote:

PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS ARTICLE JULY 19, 2012:

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/f...fer-sheet.html

Quote:
A source told the Daily News that Weber spent time in Philadelphia last week meeting with the Flyers' brass, though that also has not been confirmed by the team. This would not be tampering, since Weber was not under contract with any team.

Weber, 26, would be signed until he is 40 years old. At exactly $110 million, his salary cap hit would be $7.8 million per year, just slightly more than his $7.5 million hit from last season in Nashville and the hit teammate Ryan Suter signed with in Minnesota on July 4.

(As a note: the cap hit is figured by dividing total dollars spent by term, regardless if it is salary or signing bonus)

According to Kypreos, the Flyers have structured the deal in a way that it may be impossible for Nashville to match. The breakdown would be as follows:

2012-13 (age 27): $1 million salary + $13 million signing bonus (league maximum $14M)
2013-14 (28): $1 million salary + $13 million signing bonus (league maximum $14M)
2014-15 (29): $1 million salary + $13 million signing bonus (league maximum $14M)
2015-16 (30): $1 million salary + $13 million signing bonus (league maximum $14M)
2016-17 (31): $4 million salary + $8 million signing bonus (total $12 million)
2017-18 (32): $4 million salary + $8 million signing bonus (total $12 million)
2018-19 (33): $6 million salary
2019-20 (34): $6 million salary
2020-21 (35): $6 million salary
2021-22 (36): $6 million salary
2022-23 (37): $3 million salary
2023-24 (38): $1 million salary
2024-25 (39): $1 million salary

NASHVILLE ARTICLE FROM JULY 19, 2012:

Quote:
The agent for Shea Weber said Thursday the Predators captain and defenseman wants to play in Philadelphia and that’s why he signed an offer sheet with the Flyers.

“I don’t think you signed an offer sheet unless you’re pointing in that one direction,” agent Jarrett Bousquet told AM-1050 in Toronto. “He would like to play with the Philadelphia Flyers because we all feel he’s just another piece in the puzzle to take them to the next level and he doesn’t want to go through a rebuilding process again.”

The Predators said in a statement their “intention would be to match and retain” Weber.

Quote:
ASSETS: Has both the size and mean streak to keep skilled players honest. Excels in one-on-one situations, as he literally overpowers opponents. Can unleash a big-time point shot and log a lot of ice time. Has the ability to drop the gloves and is a born leader.

FLAWS: Must curb his propensity to run around the defensive zone in search of the big hit from time to time. Is still a little inconsistent in terms of playing the shutdown role. Will take a bad penalty once in a while.

CAREER POTENTIAL: Elite all-around defenseman with a big point shot and leadership skills.
