The Philadelphia Flyers have put the Nashville Predators in a tough predicament. After losing out on their top free agent target, Ryan Suter, the Flyers went all out and inked defenseman Shea Weber to a 14-year, $100 million dollar offer sheet.
Predators GM David Polie has said he would match any offer sheet made to his captain, but now the terms of the deal have been released via NHL insider Darren Dreger:
Weber will receive $14 mil in each of 1st 4 years. $12 mil in next 2 yrs. $6mil in following 4 yrs...then $3mil and $1mil, $1mil,$1mil,$1mil— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) July 19, 2012
Nashville now has seven days to decide on whether or not they'll match Philadelphia's offer sheet for the Norris Trophy runner-up.
