Huge. Biggest move this offseason IMO.

I really hope Nashville matches, but at the same time the Flyers losing 4 first round picks is okay, but Id hate to face this guy all year.

@DarrenDreger
I may have made an error on compensatory picks. Depending on aav, it could be 2 firsts, 2nd and a 3rd round pick if Preds don't match.

Wow... This is really out of the blue... Wouldn't be too happy to see a player like him go to a rival. Nashville is in shambles, what a mess...

Wow, Nashville's defense might be devastated. I hope he stays, it would be a needed replacement for pronger, assuming hes done, and make the flyers better

Wow! 14 years!? I have a feeling the Preds won't match and will take the draft picks.

Nashville will match this offer based on everything Poile has been saying. This was a risky play by Weber if he wanted out of Nashville. I don't even think the Flyers inflated Weber's value with this contract like Lowe did with Vanek and Penner years back.

This only turns sour for Nashville if Weber badly wants out.

Nashville's got some depth on D, but there's no replacing Suter, and Weber is an even bigger loss.

Maybe we can poach Rinne from em in a year or two when they're completely in the toilet lol

Wow this would suck for us. I am not a fan of these long expensive contracts either. I feel like NSH would rather take the picks.

I hope Nashville matches and keeps Weber out of the East for the foreseeable future. This guy is nasty and would make the Flyers very tough to beat.

As someone brought up on twitter, only way Nashville can't match is if this deal is insanely front loaded in the first few years. Otherwise, this is a no brainer.

True. I'm surprised Weber went this route, especially if he wants out of Nashville. They have money to spend now that Suter walked and, unless there is some sort of a poison pill in the contract (huge signing bonus/up front payments), there is nothing to stop them from locking him up long term. In essence, Weber signed away his ability to control his own fate next season.

I don't know about this. Dreger said that the Preds have been working on trade offers for him recently. They're at least going to get compensation here. If Weber wants out which he seemingly does now, I don't think Nashville matches.

I'd say its at best 50/50 they match.

Weber doesn't have the stones(like Scotty Stevens) to lead his team to success so he wants to be a passenger on another team. He probably also wants a bit more glitz and glamour.

I don't see much value with four 1st round draft picks that will be somewhere around 25-30 each year. They could match him and get a lot more value than that, probably from the Flyers themselves.

Weber is one of, if not the, only defenseman in the game right now worth doing this for. Can't downplay Weber here. He is that good.

Stevens didn't want to be here at first. It took him a while to become the player he did here.

I don't see much value with four 1st round draft picks that will probably somewhere around 25-30 each year. They could sign him and get a lot more value than that, probably from the Flyers themselves.


They can't move him for a year if they match. If Weber is intent on leaving, it wont be good to do that. I think it would be smart to match it just based on that, but I really can't see them doing that unless he's just trying to force Nashville into the long term contract.

I hate these long contracts as well, but I had actually predicted a few months back that we would see these sort of deals taper off as they were financially too dangerous. Ooopsie. I guess I can shelve those "I am Nostradamus" business cards I ordered. Then again, I probably could've predicted that I'd be wrong.....

@DarrenDreger
Its going to be fascinating to see financial terms of Weber's offer sheet. Hearing in one calendar year, he could make $26 mil.

Hmmm screams cap circumvention just based on that quote, but probably means the signing bonus or something. This will be really interesting to see how it plays out.
