The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenceman Shea Weber to a 14-year offer sheet worth upwards of $100 million.
The Nashville Predators have seven days to match the offer if they wish to retain Weber's services.
The 26-year-old remained a restricted free agent after failing to come to an agreement with the Predators when his one-year $7.5 million deal awarded through arbitration, expired after the season.
Compensation in the form of draft picks for the Predators should they choose not to match the Flyers offer is tied to the average per year cap hit of the offer sheet. It is expected the Predators would receive either four first round draft picks or two first round picks, one second and one third from the Flyers.
Someone was going to eventually make him an offer. It's not surprising that it ended up being Philadelphia.
Looks like this is the end of the Chris Pronger era.
