There is just one reply .... 1975 ... then point out how few of the people posting such drivel were born at that time.

How can Weber's agent ask the Predators to add a no-trade clause after an offer sheet like that? Disgraceful."

Geez for just earning a cut of such a GIGANTIC contract, you’d think the guy had just chased a bottle of Prozac with a quart of PGA. What an unprofessional putz.

If I was Shea I would be ashamed of how my ‘agents’ have presented themselves thru this whole ordeal. I thought Eeyore was talking for a minute there. Just WOW.

I'd tell him he has a no trade clause .... for all of 365 days.

Ranger fan here.

I'm very happy for the Preds fans! I'm glad that your GM matched. You have made many Ranger fans happy that we don't have to see Weber on a Philly jersey, for this year at least.

I have always like the Nashville fan base hopefully you guys will continue to be competive & upset the apple cart that is the west for many years to come.

Good luck.

As a hockey move- Time will tell. Depends on if we trade him after a year, etc. Also what else we bring in. It's just too early to say. Could be A+, could be F.

As a PR move- HELL YEAH! THAT'S F***ING RIGHT. Huge victory for a small market team over a big market team. Shows we have $$$ and want to win. Big PR day for us.

Glad you kept Weber. I like the Preds (and love your current jerseys!). Best of luck next season.
And one of your owners was one as well. Said they budgeted for Weber and Suter, so no problem with paying for Weber. Didn't sound real happy with the Flyers approach...

Hey Preds fans. Sens fan here. Have always liked the Preds, and even more so since Fish was traded there. Glad to see that you matched, and in the process gave Holmgren a big eff you! Here's hoping that either Shea plays lights out for you guys for years to come, or just for this year and then you get a much better return for him when the trade ban is lifted.

Great day to be a Preds fan! This team should be about on par with last year's team and with the kids growing up, can be even better. So happy right now!!!

Yep it was awful. Both of his agents have made toilet water of themselves on the radio. I bet Plaz and Willy wanted to punch the guy it was so disrespectful.

On the road all day and had been listening to XM, flipped over to Home Ice right after I got the text and was shocked to find our own customer support base scooped 'em by at least 35 minutes!

Go Preds! I'm already liking my mini-plan! May get tix to the Philly game just to bring a wah wah wah horn!

If he was trashing the organization as much as flyers fans were saying he was, he's lucky they'd let him even talk about adding a NTC. Here's a Blues fan really happy for you guys.

I am shocked and delighted by the news! This is the biggest thing for the Preds since they signed Kariya.

In your eye Snider!

Now the Preds need a full NHL season to recover that bonus money!

At least Rodier was entertaining, even tho he was a total schmuck...

This agent, Epps, sounded like someone had just taken away his home, or he just got out of bed...........totally non professional..... total non pr selling...... just horrid.

Hopefully tomorrow is more upbeat. The text that (I'm assuming) season ticket holder's got...

"Time for some fun in Smashville! Tomorrow Bridgestone Arena -- 12:30 -- Plaza Party w/food, entertainment followed by press conference for Weber's contract."

I'm a Detroit fan, and after listening to that interview I wanted to punch the guy. Totally classless.
