The Predators matched the offer sheet and Weber has 12 years left on his deal in Nashville with a cap hit of $7.8 million.
During the summer, while Weber was seeking an offer sheet, he secretly had visits with the Rangers, Flyers, Red Wings, Sharks and Canucks. (CBC)
Some people believe that the Flyers only sent Weber that offer sheet because they feared that he was going to end up with the Rangers via trade. (CBC)
- It's also believed that the Rangers only added in Tim Erixon to the Rick Nash deal as a way to get it done because they feared the Flyers would get Weber.
- Glen Sather disputed this notion.
The Rangers were part of trade talks for Weber and at the time the Predators requested Sean Couturier, Brayden Schenn and more from the Flyers for a possible trade.
Nashville GM David Poile has said that Weber is not available in trade. (NHL.com)
