As far as him signing a contract that put the Predators in a bind, he didn't even know the details of the contract and only heard the dollar amount from the news stations in Toronto. He did what blaine Bishop said he would do, let his agents handle it and get completely out of the way. Blaine said he didn't know any details of any of his deals until his actually had to sign the contract, Shea sounded like he was the same way.
Shea did what he had to do and got a little payback doing it. Good for him.
How did he sign the offer sheet (exhibit 6 of the CBA, page 266) and not know the dollar amount? Or is his agent just signing things without letting him know about it?
My opinion is souring daily. Yes it's business .... he should have known what was in the offer sheet and he allowed his agents to run amok in public. He hasn't signed the binding agreement now that the offer is matched. He and his agents took a chance on the offer sheet for a couple million more over the next 14 years and it's time to sign the contract.
