The feeling is that the asking price for either one is TOO DAMN HIGH

Right now he doesn't need to trade Lu right now. If Doan does decide to come to us I can see Lu getting traded shortly after to free up cap space. In the mean time why not wait and take it easy, Gillis knows he's going to get a great deal sooner then later.

14 year 100mil contract. Thats approximately 7.1Mil a year, a bargain for a guy like Weber. I think Weber really shot himself in the foot by agreeing to a contract with the Flyers for that amount if he wanted out of Nashville. Cause i cant see why Nashville wouldnt match that offer. So now he would be stuck there for the rest of his career. Unless he demands a trade in the near future or withholds his services

looks like webers a pred for life. unless they match it and then trade him. 4 first they would receive would be for 22-30 every year not really worth it.

Preds will match tomorrow or something. That's a deal for Weber. Sure, he'll be 41 when that contract is done but it's probably front loaded with a lower salary for 38-39-40-41.

Good job, Flyers...you just helped the Preds negotiate a completely reasonable contract for the NHL's best all-around defenseman.

...but this just tells me the Preds were lowballing Weber. $7.1m is like...less than Scott Gomez money!

They'll prob lose those draft picks in years to come anyway when other teams pull the same thing again. Poor Nashville.

man, these contracts are NOT good for the NHL. unless the new CBA does something about them, EVERY star is going to be looking for 10+ years and 100mil contracts now. its making the players bigger than the game. and they can sit back with their guaranteed money. would not want a contract like that on my team.

the cap era was supposed to even the playing field. these contracts are now making it so only teams dumb enough with dumb enough deep pockets are able to sign superstars. but id bet that 4 out of 5 teams signing these contracts are going to wish they hadn't before the contract is half way thru.

remember when dipietro and more recently kolvalchuk signed their contracts? it was absurd at the time. now theres been what, 5 or 6 this year?

theres 15 guys in the NHL (16 with webber) with 10-15 year deals now.

^ I feel you man, as a sharks fan, our GM basically straight up said hes opposed to that and he wouldn't give those to anyone, and I personally like that he keeps the team flex, people are actually accountable to live up to their contracts or get moved. But at the same time because of that, we end up missing on all the big name FA's because hes unwilling to stoop to that level of handing out these redic 13-14 year front loaded contracts its just a joke imo
