I don't think there is any reason to believe that Nashville is well-off financially. There is some merit to the argument that Nashville would want to make the cap floor, and needs some high-priced players to do so. But I'm sure they would rather sign players that are not earning 26M over the next 12 months, 24M guaranteed in signing bonuses, as is reported.Potatoe1 wrote:Why would they want to trade him?Klatt wrote: So he would get 12M bonus now, 2M over the next season, and 12M bonus on July 1, 2013, all before Nashville will be able to trade him. Hell, the season could be cancelled, and Nashville would still be paying those bonuses before they could trade him.
The Preds wanted to Keep all of their players, this deal is obviously more money up front then they wanted to spend but it's really just a cash flow thing and interest rates are super low.
Nashville mush have known that they couldn't keep Suter and Weber with out at least some front loading so unless their management has been full of crap the past few months then the cash is available.
Preds will match and Weber will most likely play there until the late stages of his career.
Again, unless the Preds have totally miss represented their financial position I don't see how this is a great move.What a great move by Holmgren!
I see the Preds matching and if that happens I would expect some retaliatory offer sheets heading Holmgrens way.

I'd say 95% Weber remains in Nashville but maybe I'm just trying to go along with the majority.Klatt wrote: 60% chance Weber remains in Nashville.
I'm 99% sure that 85% of the time it is because people don't read what is already posted but rather rush to post their own "original" thoughts.clem wrote:With a twist of paraphrase to make it look like something original was added.

I'm 100% sure that this phenomenon has transpired the entire time I have been posting on line at these here goddamn hockey talk message boards.
