Why would they want to 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.


What a great move by Holmgren!


Again, unless the Preds have totally miss represented their financial position I don't see how this is a great move.

I see the Preds matching and if that happens I would expect some retaliatory offer sheets heading Holmgrens way.


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.

Nashville's operating income was believe to be $-7.5M (according to Forbes). Their gate revenue is just $30M. Of course they would say they will match any offer sheet, well, actually say it is their "intention" to match any offer sheet. But that doesn't mean they can (or should) do it from a financial standpoint.

I think it could go either way. With maybe a 60% chance Weber remains in Nashville.

It is a great move by Holmgren because it costs him nothing to try. If it works, it's a fantastic move! There could be some very minor backlash of retaliation, but I can't imagine that offsets landing Weber (if he does).

Botch has some interesting comments by Gilman about the offer sheet here:

Guess it makes sense from the Canucks' perspective if you're under the assumption that NSH will match anything offered.

I'd say 95% Weber remains in Nashville but maybe I'm just trying to go along with the majority. :wink:

I’m 91% sure that over 50% of the posts in this thread are a rehash of what others have already stated.

With a twist of paraphrase to make it look like something original was added.

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.

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.

Assuming that all but 15% are the result of enthusiastic exuberance seems optimistic.

Being around a log time isn’t the same as consistency or desirability. Flies have been eating crap a long time.

I suppose what I am saying is that having been a moderator on a board much like this for a dozen or more years, thus reading threads from beginning to end on a fairly continual basis, the phenomenon, from my perspective, is not uncommon.

No worries.

I’m 1% sure that hockey withdrawal, salary envy, & being stuck in the office on a nice day is making me cranky.

Hopefully, it doesn’t develop into a case of uncontrollable shaking, followed by wild accusations of Canuck incompetence.
