from Josh Cooper of The Tennessean,
“I think disappointment would not adequately describe the word I would like to choose,” Predators general manager David Poile said. “Disappointed and little surprised based on all the conversations we’ve had.”
Poile said the Predators were not given last chance to match the Wild’s reported offer of 13 years at $98 million.
“We asked him what the reason was and he said it was for family reasons,” Poile said.
“Our attention turns to our captain Shea Weber and the player we want to build our franchise around and see if we can talk to he and his representative about a longer term contract with the Predators,” Poile said.
