When I went to the Draft in LA last year, my buddy and I ate at a nearby steakhouse after the first round concluded. The next guy who walked in the door after us was Shea Weber. Thought that was a good sign that he was genuinely interested in the franchise as most players would have other things to do than to attend the Draft.

Exactly, sick already of the Weber proposals. If he left it would be a good case for the owners to bargain for a "franchise player" tag like in the NFL.

Good news. Will be interesting to see what he gets.

But keep in mind, if there is a disparity in contract talks, this could also mean "staying" with the Predators for one year and see what happens.

I don't think there was any question that he wanted to stay. However if we missed the playoffs, that's another story. I'm so curious as to what the length of the contract will be. I 2-3year lets wait and see how the club improves, or a 6-7year I'm a pred for my career type of deal.

Y'know, the last time I was watching something like this, the "disparity" was resolved with one public comment by the player followed by an eight year contract being announced two or three days later.

I'm not particularly worried.

Was it someone named Nash by any chance?

I'm waiting and watching. Preds need to get Weber and Suter under contract for under $13M, and every dollar closer to $12M the better ($6.5M and $6M would be perfect). They need at least 4 years from them and one of them needs to be at least 6. If Weber gets more than $7M and/or less than 3 years, it's a bad result.

My guess is that we will try to find a different structure that pays each "the same" however that's defined. I guess Poile will hand out NMC's like candy again... not perfect but what can you do.

not much meat on this bone, but....would you actually expect something of substance considering the source?

Loved what Paul said, very true to. That's why I think Radu will be back in a Preds jersey next season to try and put us deeper in. My brother and I actually thought back when he bolted that it was a blessing in disguise because we've never really developed any offensive talent at the forward position. Thought that the Russian league might help him get even better and maturity always comes with age. I think our success over the past seasons since his departure will get him back and he'll be hungry to help push us further.

Rads would have to take a paycut from what he currently makes to return to the NHL as he's still on his ELC.

As for Weber, he'll get paid no matter where he ends up playing. Up to him where that is.

RFA compensation, according to NHL.com is $7.7 million and up per season warrants 4 1st rounders. Between $6.1 million to $7.7 million is 2 1st rounders, a 2nd and a 3rd rounder.

Only players currently with a greater than $7.7 million cap hit are Ovechkin, Crosby, Malkin, Staal, Lecavalier, Nash, B. Richards. Heatley and Chara are at $7.5 million.

There will be something done by July 1.

David Poile is a damn good GM, he's proven over and over he will get the right deals done. Shea is a no-brainer. Poile has been saying this for months.

6 home playoff games help a lot.

5 years, 30 million.

Great deal for the team and 6 million a year is a nice chunk of change.

I can't see them signing him for only a 5 or 6 year deal. That would leave him as a free agent when he's 30 or 31 and still in his prime. If I'm Nashville and 8-10 year deal makes more sense.

Six years would be good. It allows Shea to sign for something the team can afford. And leave himself the chance to move on before the end of his career if it appears he needs to in order to win the cup before he gets too old, which may be worth allowing a slight home town discount. A longer deal would cost us too much per year I think and be too risky. At least if I were Shea and six years made me very financially secure, I'd only sign for eight and up if the deal was absolutely huge. Otherwise, I'd sign for a couple years less and have the future flexibility. Six would be about right for the Preds too, as far as risk I think. Easier for a younger guy to recover from injury (I knocked on wood) then a middle age or older guy.

I'll bet on 6 years and 6.8 up to 7 million per year average. I think Poile will pay up. Then sign Suter at around 6 per year.

I think that will come down to what Shea Weber wants. I think he's committed to Nashville for now, but you can see he wants to see more happen from the front office.

If we are talking 6m or so, might has well go for 8-10 years. The cap should only go up. He will want a NTC, but I'm sure we'd be willing to give it to him. At the same time, he has real potential to earn more than 6m a year in five years, especially if the caps goes up.
