Shea Weber has agreed to a 14-year offer sheet with the Philadelphia Flyers.
The contract is believed to be worth upwards of $100 million. The Nashville Predators now have seven days to match the offer or let him go to Philadelphia and accept draft picks as compensation. It's worth noting that the Nashville Predators are under the salary floor, so not only do they have the space for Weber's contract, you could argue that they need it too. Allowing Weber to walk, especially after losing Ryan Suter earlier this summer, would be a huge blow to Nashville. With all that in mind, it would be shocking if Nashville didn't exercise their right to match this offer.



Damn. I cant imagine nashville not matching though
he's just what we need too

Maybe the Detroit Red Wings haven’t been quite as passive as we thought over the past couple of weeks. According to multiple reports, the Red Wings “made a hell of an offer” to the Columbus Blue Jackets in an attempt to land Rick Nash.

From Chuck Pleiness at the Macomb Daily:

However, the offer generated zero conversation.

It’s not known what the Wings offered, but reports have said that Columbus general manager Scott Howson is looking for two proven NHL forwards in return.

That’s a pretty steep asking price for any team, including the Wings, who would more than likely have to part with proven talent like Johan Franzen or Valtteri Filppula and perhaps even throw in an up-and-coming star like Darren Helm or Gustav Nyquist.

The Wings apparently are on Nash’s approved list of teams that he’d accept a trade to, but the Blue Jackets have been asking for the moon thus far (i.e. Jeff Skinner from the Hurricanes) and are likely reluctant to send Nash within the division to Detroit.

It’s hard to envision any way that this winds up happening, unless Detroit sends a monster offer — I’m talking, like, Valtteri Filppula, Jimmy Howard and a first-round pick. The only other chance Detroit has is that the Blue Jackets get desperate to deal if this situation remains unresolved into the preseason and beyond.

All-Star Shea Weber would help the Flyers fill a big hole in their blueline corps.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the decision says the Philadelphia Flyers have signed Nashville star defenseman Shea Weber to a 14-year offer sheet worth more than $100 million.

The Sports Network in Canada first reported the offer.

The person spoke to The a.ssociated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the Flyers hadn't announced the offer.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren confirmed early Thursday that the Flyers did sign Weber to an offer sheet. He gave no further details. The Predators issued a statement late Thursday morning confirming they had received the Flyers' offer sheet, which gives the team seven days to make a decision on matching the deal or letting the defenseman go.

"We have stated previously that, should a team enter into an offer sheet with Shea, our intention would be to match and retain Shea," Predators general manager David Poile said. "Our ownership has provided us with the necessary resources to build a Stanley Cup-winning team. Due to the complexity of the offer sheet, we will take the appropriate time to review and evaluate it, and all of its ramifications, in order to make the best decision for the Predators in both the short and long-term."

HACKEL: Offer sheet puts Predators at crossroads

Weber, 26, is the Predators' captain and played on a $7.5 million arbitrator's award last season. He had 19 goals and 49 points along the way.

Nashville already lost free-agent defenseman Ryan Suter to Minnesota this summer, and losing Weber would be an unexpected blow to a defense-first team that had 104 points last season, took the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference and advanced to the second round of the playoffs.

Meanwhile, Weber would fill the void left by Philadelphia defenseman Chris Pronger's absence. Pronger -- a key cog in the Flyers' run to the 2010 Stanley Cup finals as a No. 7 seed -- has been battling concussion problems and missed most of last season. He finished with one goal in 13 games as the Flyers bowed out in the second round to New Jersey after a promising, 103-point regular season. The Flyers were exposed on defense in that five-game, Round 2 loss to the rival Devils, and since have lost defenseman Matt Carle, who snared a six-year, $33 million deal with Tampa Bay.

Weber would fix a lot of problems for a Flyers team that allowed 44 goals in just 11 postseason games. He is a three-time All Star who helped Canada win gold in the 2010 Olympics, and is also is the mainstay of the Predators' defensive-minded approach. He is coming off a season in which he turned in a career-best plus-21 rating. Weber was sixth among NHL defensemen in scoring, as well, last year.

He also had a career-high 22 points on the power play, and led all NHL defensemen with 10 power-play goals.

Weber averaged 29 minutes, 9 seconds of ice time last season, second on the team to his former partner, Suter, who signed a 10-year, $98 million deal with Minnesota on July 4.

The Predators said they had the money to keep Weber and Suter after signing goalie Pekka Rinne to a seven-year, $49 million deal last November. But Poile couldn't keep Suter in town despite team officials thinking they had a good chance to keep their top draft pick in 2003. The Wild not only snagged Suter, but also agreed with forward Zach Parise, Suter's good friend who left New Jersey for a similar deal to Suter's, a month after leading the Devils to the Stanley Cup finals.

Nashville took Weber, the team's fourth pick in the second round in that same 2003 draft, to arbitration a year ago and couldn't take the restricted free agent there again this summer.

The Flyers would love to make a splash after losing out on Suter and Parise. They lost Carle and forward Jaromir Jagr, who left for Dallas, and traded one of their former cornerstones in forward James van Riemsdyk to Toronto.

Clearly, Philadelphia is in a position of need. The Flyers need help on the backline, they have watched teams around them in the East get better, and are still smarting from consecutive exits in the second round. Not to mention, last summer, Holmgren pulled off the stunning deals to get rid of high-priced forwards Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, and the two ended up helping Los Angeles to the Stanley Cup last month.

So, with a move like this, the Flyers seem to be drawing a line in the sand, especially after watching so many stars head elsewhere this offseason.

Perhaps Weber stops all of that. After all, he would likely be the Eastern Conference's biggest offseason addition, and one that can fuel Philadelphia's chase for a first Stanley Cup since 1975.

Friday, 07.20.2012 / 4:18 PM / News
By Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players' a.ssociation wrapped up three consecutive days of collective bargaining negotiating sessions at the League's offices Friday. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said the sessions included "good, candid dialogue, and the process continues."

The League and the NHLPA agreed to reconvene for negotiating sessions next week at the PA's offices in Toronto. The goal is to have a new Collective Bargaining Agreement in place before the current agreement expires Sept. 15.

"There is a process that collective bargaining entails and we're moving through that process," Commissioner Bettman said. "I haven't put a stopwatch on it yet. There's obviously a lot of work to be done in a relatively short period of time, but I think we can work toward that goal and accomplish that goal."

The meeting Friday consisted of small-group sessions.

The League's negotiating committee included Commissioner Bettman, Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly, Boston Bruins owner and Chairman of the Board Jeremy Jacobs, Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, Minnesota Wild owner Craig Leipold, and legal counsel.

The NHLPA was represented by Executive Director Donald Fehr, Special a.ssistant to the Executive Director Mathieu Schneider, legal counsel, and four players: Scott Hartnell (Flyers), Manny Malhotra (Canucks), Kevin Westgarth (Kings) and Shane Doan (unrestricted free agent).

Fehr said the purpose of the meeting Friday was to continue to review information related to the items that have already been discussed, including aspects of the NHL's initial proposal, which were made last Friday in Toronto.

"We had a fairly good discussion, a frank discussion today," Fehr said.

Fehr said the PA is not yet ready to offer a counter proposal to the NHL's or a new proposal for the NHL to consider.

"We're having a lot of internal discussions, but when we get to the point where we are going to respond formally to the proposal they made by counter proposal or separate proposal, everybody will know," Fehr said. "We're not there."

Fehr said the PA has a number of agenda items up for discussion next week that will likely revolve around "non-core economic" items and said they may include alignment of the League, how the League's discipline system works, business issues, player safety, and travel issues.

"I hope with the issues we talk about we're able to make some progress," Fehr said. "Progress can consist of having the discussions and clearing out the underbrush. It could consist of making or withdrawing proposals on either side. It could consist of trying to focus on certain things. It's hard to say."

TSN's Darren Dreger is reporting that the Rangers have acquired Rick Nash from the Blue Jackets.
Details of the trade have not been released, but Dreger does say the deal is complete pending the trade call. Derek Stepan is one player Dreger has pointed out as not being included in this package.

Yo, is there a good fan base in phoenix? I know theres obviously some huge hockey fans everywhere, but how big is the coyotes fan base? Do a lot of people wanna see them stay there or just get the fu*k out?
Nope... born and raised in AZ and if you even mention hockey to anyone they will say "Dude no one watches hockey."

My dad and I would go to every single Red Wings game when they would play the Coyotes and it would be 3 to 1 Red Wing's fans to Coyote's fans everytime. Until the playoffs would come along and then you would see the place fill up with Coyote's fans.
