Preds Keep Weber, Match Philly's Offer
After six days of delliberation the Nashville Predators have decided to keep their captain. They've matched the Philadelphia Flyers' offer for defenseman Shea Weber worth $110 million over 14 seasons. As with any NHL contract, that doesn't mean Weber will have to spend his whole career in Nashville, but at the very least they have to wait one year before trading him.
