Predators match Flyers’ $110 million offer sheet for Webber
- Updated: July 25, 2012
Shea Weber can thank the Philadelphia Flyers for one of the richest and longest contracts in the NHL.
The small-market Predators made the bold move Tuesday to match the staggering offer sheet made by a deep-pocketed Flyers organization to keep the two-time Norris Trophy-nominated defenseman in the franchise.
Shea it ain’t so, Philly. Weber is still a Predator.
Nashville dug deep into the pocketbook and decided to pay Weber the $110 million over 14 years offered by the Flyers. 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.
