If so I'm starting to understand the Weber camp's strategy here.

Nashville needs to pray Weber doesnt get hit with an injury bug.

See ya

Article 10.3 (b) allows for additional terms as may be agreed upon between RFA & prior club. So Nashville & Weber could agree on NTC/NMC.


Not sure why the Predators would do so but.....

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.
