BREAKING: The Flyers have signed All-Star defenseman Shea Weber to an offer sheet of 14 years worth $110 million according to Nick Kypreos of SportsNet Canada.
The Nashville Predators will have 7 days to match the offer. If Nashville chooses not to match the Flyers will have to send 4 first round draft picks to the Predators as compensation.
TSN’s Darren Dreger reports that Weber could make up to 27 million in the first calender year of the contract which could hurt Nashville’s chance of matching the contract. Nashville GM David Poile has previously stated that he would match any offer for their captain but the possibility of a front loaded contract could hinder that.
In 7 seasons with Nashville Weber has recorded 99 goals and 263 points in 480 career NHL games.
We want to hear from you, will Shea Weber be wearing orange and black next season?
