This makes no sense. Why would Weber sign this offer sheet if he wanted to get out of Nashville? This will easily be matched...
The only reasoning I see behind this is that Nashville was only offering him, say a 90M contract, and he wanted 100+, so this was his way of squeezing out that extra dough. No way Nashville was gonna let him go for 10-20M over 15 years.
But then there are reports that they were trying to trade him... makes no sense. I guess if they trade him after next season, it could work. Seems like a big win for the Preds right now.
