Maybe Buff will work off some of that poundage as he picks up trash.

How can he pick up trash if he can't even bend over far enough to zip his pants?

If they're all cheeseburger wrappers, you'd be surprised how motivated he can get.

The Cup-winning Nŕshville Predators franchise matches the offer for Shea Weber.

The hardcore Jackets fan in me is a tad frustrated that we'll still have to match up against him.

The hockey fan - and non-tradtional market hockey fan - in me is beyond thrilled that the Broad Street Bullies didn't get their way.

I agree with you Viqsi.

Though secretly part of me wanted them to take the picks and turn out even better for it, But I know that would be hard on their fans.

At least I know I can include Weber in my next video. I was ready to cave in yesterday morning and start putting Nash in it. Glad I held off.

Not surprised. The Preds without Weber would have gone down hill fast and even Poile may not have been able to put the pieces back together.

The bad news for us? I always thought Weber was the better of their big two defenseman and he's now signed long term. I'd still bet on them to make the playoffs next year even with the loss of Suter. Poile has some interesting decisions over the next 12 months--a lot of guys with expiring contracts. He might want to go ahead and lock up some of those guys now.

As I understand it,and that's far from believing I'm 100% right, by matching the Preds have agreed to the signing bonuses, salaries, length, etc but a contract with all the i's dotted and t's crossed still has to be worked out.

I was reading on tsn.ca that it is rumored/expected that Weber's agents will ask for some sort of NMC or NTC provision in his contract.

What happens if they can't work out the details?

The Preds risk further angering a player who a few days ago signed a piece of paper that said he wanted to play with another team.

It isn't a great situation.

One of the national hockey writers had a great line on twitter last night (sorry can't remember who)

Weber asking for an NTC is like a man who cheated on his fiancee going back after the affair and asking for a prenup.

Weber got the contract he wanted, maybe that was more important than which destination he ended up at. Since we can't be 100% sure of his intentions, I'm not sure Skraut's analogy is accurate.

The consensus seems to be that "contract he wanted" was a higher priority, considering that indications otherwise were all advanced by his agents... and his agents also swore up and down that Nashville never made a comparable offer to them, which (thanks to an interview with minority owner Brett Wilson, listenable here) has been debunked. (I highly recommend that interview regardless. It's fun. )

Consequently, they're the folks I end up with the lowest opinion of in that whole mess. Matt Calvert works with them as well, and I'm kind of wondering if we can get his contact info and thereby send a few messages to convince him to switch.

So then, is Carolina actually the 'island of misfit toys' according to Marc Crawford?

Good for Jake.

Bit of an overpayment, but I think it'll turn into a value by year 2/3. Jake is going to be a star, IMO. Hard to believe he's only now going to be 23.

I agree, Jake will be a star someday. Too bad Jagr is gone, though. I think he was a good example of work ethic and someone Jake looks up to.

Well, he's 4x the player Boll is, so you're right, he must be.
