Weber Signs $110M Offer Sheet With Flyers

Defenseman Shea Weber has signed an offer sheet with the Philadelphia Flyers that will give him the second-richest contract in NHL history at $110 million over 14 years. Weber’s current team, the Nashville Predators, have a week to decide if they want to match the offer and keep Weber, or let him go and probably get four first-round draft picks from Philly.

A part owner of the team made a brief Twitter statement: “Am aware of Philly offer.” The Preds have until 11:59 PM next Wednesday to make their decision. If they decide to match the offer, they would be unable to trade Weber for a calendar year, and might have trouble coming up with all that cash because of the way the Flyers structured the deal. Under the offer, Weber will get $26 million in signing bonuses by next July, and Forbes valued the entire Predators franchise at $163 million.

Stars Sign Jagr: One Year, $4.55M

Veteran forward Jaromir Jagr and the Dallas Stars agreed to a one-year deal worth $4.5 million on Tuesday. The 40-year-old Jagr put up career lows last season with 19 goals and 54 points in his first and only season with the Philadelphia Flyers, but that wasstill mildly impressive after he had spent the previous three seasons playing in Russia’s KHL.

Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk still says Jagr can contribute even at his advanced age. “He’s still a world-class player,” said Nieuwendyk. “For us to bring a player like that to our franchise is a big deal.”

Money is apparently a big deal to Jagr, who will get a nice bump from the $3.3 million he made last season in Philly. And signing over-the-hill veterans is apparently a big deal in Dallas. Just two days before the Jagr signing, Nieuwendyk and the Stars also signed 40-year-old Ray Whitney to a two-year, $9 million deal.

Vicious Hit Bloodies Kings Player

I’m sure LA Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi would take 10 illegal hits in order to achieve the highest of goals in the NHL — hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup.

The Kings got to do that last night, but not before Scuderi was bloodied and bashed by the Devils’ Steve Bernier.
