lol yeah man I know we're great at locking people up... Richards, Coburn, Grossmann, Carter :P But then theres Vorachek why wouldnt someone offer sheet him? Maybe Preds will offer sheet Voracek and get Timmo + more for this who knows.
Weber ALREADY SIGNED it....he WANTS to play here.. which is great news for us.
Check this out though that I found...pretty interesting.
Under the CBA rollbacks proposed by NHL owners, Shea Weber's 14-year, $100-million offer sheet would become a 100-year, $1.4 million deal.
one thing is for sure, if we thought the Suter / Parise was nerve wracking this will be the most nervous 7 days as a Flyers fan to recent date lol.
no one will be sleeping
*******s win in life, its a proven fact. I feel like Giroux wouldn't sign an offer sheet from another team.....
Does this make the Flyers the sole trade partner for Weber until Nashville decides whether to match or not?
Also, if there is not a trade involving Schenn or Couturier, I honestly see this as a win-win. If we get Weber, we're a cup contender. If we don't, he won't be on a cup contender for the rest of his career.
4 low end first rounders is not a good deal for a PROVEN top 5 Dman...
NOT EVEN CLOSE lol..
Assuming the Flyers will finish making the playoffs every of those 4 years....should we expect less???
If thats the case thats ugly picks
...Hey...would he become our captain to keep the pressure of leadership off Giroux? I know he did well as a leader, but what do you guys think?
RealKyper #Preds Weber offer sheet 1st 4 yrs 1M salary+13M sb; yrs 5-6 4M sal+ 8Msb; yrs 7-10 6M sal; year 11 3M sal; last 3 yrs 1M salary
Predators would need to shell out $56M to Weber between now and July 1, 2014. That's $28M in next 347 days.
.....i'm stunned. i can honestly say i did not see this coming. i knew it was a scenario all along, but i just cannot believe anyone would actually do it.
i guess if anyone had the balls to do it, it would certainly be Homer.
i'm just stunned.....stunned.
possibly getting Shea Weber without giving up any players on the current roster AND AT A $7.85 MILLION CAP HIT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
It has been reported on this forum that the Flyers FO and the Preds FO are very close. That makes me think that this signing 1.) Didn't blindside the Preds and 2.) Wouldn't have been done if the Preds were gonna match.
reporting $52 million in bonuses in first 4 years...Weber's offer sheet looks more like an NFL contract,not an NHL one!
If NSH match PHI offer, they must keep him 1 calendar yr before trying to trade him. Oh and pay him 27M .
Orriginal offer sheet for Shea Weber was 1yr, but Preds would match. $68 mil in bonus $ in 1st 6 yrs, $27 mil total in less than 1 year.
Spending $26M in one calendar yr, NSH would be forking over 16% of entire franchise net worth ($163M in '11 Forbes) to match
