You are right: only 8 since 1999: two by the Flyers and two by Edmonton.

Recently, Shea Weber was matched despite the 13M bonus for the first four years.

I was sure Nashville would not match.

With 74M in revenue and loosing 5.5M in 2010.
Team is valued at 148M, bought at 174M and had 81M in debt (Stadium included and it seems it is very busy).
So with Weber contract, they are probably receiving money from the revenue sharing program.

Basically, Weber cost them 13.585M this year. Using 48/82 of their 2010 revenue, it represents more than 30% of their revenue.

How much Toronto is paying on this contract?

But my point was: there are very few offer sheets (one per year) and we should not expect an offer sheet from MB.
