I wouldnt believe it. He is not dumb and dumber like his Weber agents. He would not admit to shopping Weber now that he they are tied for 27 mil

Very interesting press conference.

Poile says we have to be patient and it sounds like we are going into the season as is.

you really expect poile to admit that we were shopping Weber now that he's ours for 14 years??

get real... you know Poile was shopping him at some point... the widely reported word was poile kept demanding Couturier++ and holmgren wouldnt budge and so threw the bomb OS....

Fair enough guys. Didn't expect him to go into detail or anything, perhaps just saying that they were discussing other options/scenarios. That would have been enough for me. Sometimes I wonder why I expect so much out of press conferences.

Trotz said that they still want a top 4 d-man above all, but if season began today, they would use Josi...but it sounds like their preference is still to add before training camp.

Also, Trotz, Poile, and Weber all confirmed Predators interest in Doan, and all have spoken with him. Feel like they have as good of a chance as anyone.

Whether or not we go out and get pieces to Weber's liking he is here to stay unless the team wants to get rid of him. That's the silver lining here. It isn't like last summer when it was more of a "go get more pieces or lose me" situation.

true, I just hear it as an "excuse that we are not winning". I just hope he really takes the leadership and leads the team.... I don't think he was doing it last year. I think emotionally he just was too distracted by this and suter all year.

I really think we are going to see a different Weber next year. I just have a feeling Suter was bringing him down because of the comments at the all star game and him having one foot out the door.

Weber, Trotz, Poile all mention Doan as a target. Now that is interesting. Trotz says they want another top 4 d man (poile says patience) Weber says he would like to see more pieces added.

I think a top 4 d man is a must. Hopefully happens. I truly believe Philly was Weber's first choice, but staying in Nashville wasn't a problem to him. Not his first choice but a decent option. I do think he is going to have BIG questions to answer regarding his agents.

Too much moderation, there was a separate thread, but it was merged into this one after 10 posts. I guess it's nice to have 3 Preds reps as Mods on HF... but to be honest guys, you go a little overboard sometimes. HF moderation is starting to get silly.

I don't think its that. I think Weber is highly driven on winning. I think he is saying Preds brass please do not give up on making this team better now that you signed me. Please don't roll your sleeves down now. I cant blame him for that.

His first choice was big guaranteed money with a possible lockout coming, and a huge lifetime contract before the new CBA limits them.

I'm willing to let Shea off on this for now, he's here and he's going to be the face of this franchise for a long time. No sense in being spiteful and dragging this on, let the healing process begin and enjoy having Shea Weber locked up for the rest of his career. Now if he comes out and loafs on the ice and acts up demanding a trade next summer... then let the daggers fly!

Doan is also a big christian. I have heard numerous people mention him and Fisher are good friends. Poile also elluded to Doan knowing some of the Preds players very well in his interview on 102.5

I know that. I'm not saying it can be renegotiated. I was just saying, it would be interesting if Weber had turned down not only a $104M offer from us, but one with a NTC, in favor of a Philly offer sheet with obviously no guarantees about NTC/NMC.

+1, +1,+1. That line was worn out last year. Grow a pair. I want a captain that says "You can pair me with Billy ********ing Houlder and bring back Denny Lambert to anchor our first line, I'm Captain superballs and me and Pekka are gonna bring the Cup to this town repeatedly over the next 14 years."

It is very reassuring to hear management say we have the money to fill holes in our roster.

I think adding a top 4 d man will be great. Adding Doan seems more likely than I originally thought. That would be fantastic.

Yandle and Jbo would be my first picks, but I would take a couple other options as well.

I haven't listened to the conference call yet but was following it on Twitter, and it sounded like Weber's response about his agents was pretty unsatisfying: basically that what they said must just be how they feel because he had nothing to do with it.

Really bro? Those dudes are your EMPLOYEES. Their job is to represent you, and you pay them...a LOT...to do it. You can't let them run amok on the radio making you look bad then just shrug and be like "I wasn't involved in that". That's some ****ing weak sauce right there.

Obviously what his agents said on the radio reflects how Shea really feels, because if it didn't he would've gotten pissed and fired them by now. And let me be clear, it did hurt to hear those comments from his agents, but I'm not MAD about Shea's feelings themselves. I'm mad that his agents thought it was appropriate to air them on the radio as a means to pressure us not to match, and I'm mad that Shea apparently thinks that's acceptable behavior as well since he hasn't fired them or even spoken out strongly against them.

Honestly I'm more mad at his agents than anyone else in this whole scenario. They are total d-bags. I wish I knew how to contact them personally to tell them so.

If he called himself Captain Superballs, all would be forgiven...forever. That's amazing, hahahaha.
