Talking Shea Weber Contract

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

I am told contracts talks with Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber will soon begin in earnest. The Preds did communicate with Weber’s agent, veteran Don Meehan from Newport Sports, last month in terms of expressing their vision for the franchise and what an important part Weber is in that vision. The team showed that by making him captain in the offseason, too.

Talk about the most important set of contract talks in franchise history. Weber, a stud blueliner, will be a restricted free agent July 1, only one year away from being eligible for unrestricted free agency.

There are three clear scenarios here:

1. He signs an extension and life is good in Music City.

2. He only does a one-year deal to bridge himself to his UFA year and he can do this by going to salary arbitration next summer.

3. The Preds get nervous they can’t sign him to a long-term extension and put him on the trade block over the summer.
