from Craig Custance of ESPN Insider,
As of Monday, Weber hadn’t had any serious conversations on a possible offer sheet nor has the Weber camp aggressively sought any out. He likes Nashville and hasn’t been planning an exit strategy.
But that doesn’t mean there isn’t internal concern in the Nashville organization that an offer sheet is a possibility.
“It’s the nature of our business,” said one Nashville source. “These are the rules designed into our current system.”
There’s an assumption that the Predators would match any offer sheet given to their captain, but one source suggested that a one-year deal worth something close to the maximum like $13-14 million might handcuff Nashville.
“If they match, they can’t trade him,” he pointed out.
