Weber on his way out of Nashville?

I dunno... I don't believe it... Plus it's in Swedish.. Here's a rough translation of the "sweet spots"

http://webbsporten.se/shea-weber-vil...logg+om+hockey)

Quote:
It won the Olympic gold gave Weber a taste for success and there are rumors now that the slopes are not going to sign any contract extension this summer.

He is at the end of $ 4.5 million "contract restricted free agent so that Nashville has the right to match competing kontraksförslag and then retain Weber.

The team will be at a loss and will probably not have the financial means to match the deals are expected to have slopes.

Is the rumors that Weber most of all to leave for the Predators games in hockey more interested regions learn it best to THIRD star already. The mean anyway Bill Watters (former the assistant general manager in Toronto) who discussed rumors in a radio show the other day.

As a Colorado fan...

Where do I sign?

I'll do this before the CBJ fans do it:

This has the aire of Rick Nash to Toronto.

Oh, I don't doubt that some team (or several) would drastically overpay for Weber...and then live to regret it. I see his play going south a bit (maybe a fair bit) if you extricate him from a fairly comfortable position alongside Suter in Nashville.

Load of garbage. I have heard nothing but positive things when it comes to Weber-Nashville relations.


That said, as a Boston fan I would offer:
Toronto's 1st 2011
Boston's 1st 2011
Joe Colborne
Zach Hamill

to get the conversation going. Chances are good Nashville would also want David Krejci but I'll let me GM handle the details.

If it's a choice between Weber or Suter. You can have Weber.

I've always figured Suter was the better player, but no one seemed to agree with me.

Destinatio Toronto obviously:


That aside, Burke said that if he could choose from any defensemen from the entire league, it would be weber.

The whole premise of that column (read: recycling of Watters rumors) was that Nashville wouldn't be able to afford to keep Weber. From what I can understand they will have room to keep him if they choose to.

Preds are setup to give Weber an extension after this season. They shed nearly 7 million between Steve Sullivan, Joel Ward, and Shane O'Brien which they can reallocate towards Weber.

I went to the NHL Draft in LA and went to dinner at a nearby steakhouse after the first round was over. The next guy in line was Shea Weber. Would seem odd that a player would attend the Draft if he wasn't interested in staying longterm.

Parise for Weber.

Add picks and prospects on either side.

I know the preds haven't won a playoff series yet, but they certainly aren't a perennial lottery team. I understand why players want to get out of really crappy franchises but I wouldn't count Nashville among them.

They will have enough money, and I never believe the "I want to play for a major market" as reason enough to leave.

So in short: BS.

Considering Barry Trotz talking up both Weber and Ryan Suter as players deserving of being in the All-Star game and being Nashville's stars (In response to the "Nashville is a team of no-names who work hard" description), I'd suggest the Preds will be, at the very least, extremely unlikely to move Weber.

I highly doubt this is true.

If so though, you've got to believe Doug Wilson would be ALL over this. I imagine pretty much anyone would be on the table if Weber were available.

Summer

The summer of 2011 is when Weber and the Preds will decide on his long term future in the NHL.

He's an RFA, 1 year from UFA this summer, so he has the following options:

1) Sign a long term deal with the Preds
2) Elect to sign a 1 year deal or go to arbitration and get a 1 year deal so that he becomes a UFA on July 1, 2012. If he does this, the Preds can play out the season with him and depending on how they perform, either:
a) Try to re-sign him during the season if he wants to stay
b) Trade him at the deadline
c) Trade his rights after their season is complete
3) If he decides he no longer wants to remain with the Preds, he can tell them that this summer and in essence force a trade out of Nashville.

Completely up to Weber what he wants to do.

Management I'm sure would rather have Weber. Neither have been anything better than above-average this year anyway.

I would hope Dallas would go after him if this was true.
