The Nashville Predators have announced that they have matched the offer sheet to Shea Weber. The Flyers offer to Weber was 14 years, $110 million which he signed.
Nashville had seven days to match it, and today they announced that they have.
Here is a statement from GM Paul Holmgren:
"In tendering an offer sheet to Shea Weber, we were trying to add a top defenseman entering the prime of his career. With Nashville matching our offer, we wish Shea and the Predators all the best.”
Good effort by Holmgren. Take a look at Nashville's side to the story.
