Teams would be lined up to get him. I really don't think the Preds had a choice, they had to match. The deal from Philly would of had to have been unreal, let's say...

Coutourier
B. Schenn
L. Schenn
1st Round Pick

Something like that. The bad thing for Shea is, this probably prevents the Preds from making any major improvements to the team over the next 4 years. They'll continue to be a solid team, playoff contender, anywhere from 4th to 10th in the West. I'm sure Weber wanted the deal to go through. He got his money, but he's never gonna win a cup in Nashville. The packages for him next summer are gonna be huge.
