Legwand looks a lot like Weber.

Well, I wasn't really referring to this move. I said offer sheets are part of the game, so it's all good.
I'm just looking in general. Even in NJ where there's more people that show up for my Bday party than to watch the Devils, they gave out long crazy deals. Minnesota with Parise and Suter, Flyers with Weber, Vancouver with Luongo, Pittsburgh, Washington, etc..
Owners are just making themselves look bad. But wtv, I don't really care so long as I get to see some entertaining hockey.

My dog just signed an offer sheet with the neighbor.
Sort of makes my point about loyalty.

So Weber would be getting paid 14 million per year for the first 4 years while having a cap hit of only 7.857 million.. Tough for smaller market teams to keep their franchise players when larger market teams are allowed to do this.. The NHL needs to really put an end to those heavy front loaded contracts with little at the end that significantly lowers the amount of the cap hit.

why are all these players getting massive signing bonuses? Doesn't that break the essence of a salary cap (on an annual basis at least).

If I were the preds, I would match and look for a potential trade partner next year. They don't need draft picks, they are not in a rebuild and they need to reach the salary floor!

if the preds are afraid that they cant pay shea that amount wouldnt the league swoop in and pay him eventually? I think Vicent lecavlier was going through some tough times a few years ago. Not sure about all that.

I guess the preds would have to declare they are bankrupt or something.

They get the bonus even if there is a lock out. It counts against the cap.

Not really sure why people are whining about GM's and owners. The rule of not giving more than 5 years is not existing. So the guys are going by the rule in place. Once the rule will exist, they will go by that rule. Sorry, but ethic goes so far. If on a road, you can go to 100km/h, yet you know that at that place it should be 60....will you really go 60? And the rule is also NOT for the most fortunate. But for the majority who isn't. Yet, it's all great to say that the Philly owner is amongst the one who wants the players to take a paycut and so on yet, TO THIS DAY, if he doesn't do anything, maybe the Rangers will.....So you don't create laws 'cause you personnally believe in them. You create it so that your opponents can't have an advantage on you. Have no problem with what Philly did. But hey, if it means abolishing this system, not even have RFA's anymore and so on...so be it. Whatever they decide. But as of now, they go with what is in place. Preds don't like it? Take the pick, you have some great youngsters D-men in your system, you'd pick some d-men along the way and we never know, they might be better sooner than we think.

Now....would they be interested in Kaberle????

So you'll give almost 28m for 1 year of Weber?

I doubt they would want kaberle now. They re-signed Gill.

Well, they lost Suter and maybe Weber. So Gill replaces Suter and Kaberle replaces Weber. They won't even see the difference...

That's my big beef too. Bettman is supposed to be this crafty lawyer who "wins" all his negotiations. I thought that would imply he was thorough. Getting a "signing bonus" four, five, six years after you sign doesn't pass the smell test.

I hope PK and Don Meehan aren't looking at the structure and length of deals such as these and licking their chops because their is NO WAY the Habs would ever try something this shady, whether it's Gainey, Gauthier, Bergevin or anybody else at the helm.

I thought that the maximum is 20% of the salary cap (salary and cap hit)

Well, there might not be a lockout. Or it might not last a full year, anyway.

It is because the signing bonuses are paid before the season or some stupid ****.

I can't ****ing stand these ridiculous long term contracts.

And people wonder why we may be in store for yet another lockout. It's a joke.

27M in one year only has to hurt. I still hope they match the offer.

As per your comment on Weber not wanting to be there, I read a tweet today saying it was Pile who walked away from a 3 year $7M counter offer from Webers camp last year. I don't think it's a case of Weber not wanting to stay. It's a case of him wanting to get PAID.

Nashville should take the 4 picks and give 3 to Howson for Nash. It would be a marketing goldmine. You should be able to convince a guy named Nash to come to NASHville. He'd be a hero. Use the other 1st as part of a package to get yourself a guy like Bouwmeester.
