Could Wings still make a move on Weber this year?

If Ryan Suter eludes us, what are the chances of us out-bidding Nashville for Weber this season. Would the cap space available by Suter's departure allow NSH to submit an insane qualifying offer?

What would stop Holland from tossing a 12-year $100m offer sheet at Shea just to put NSH in a tough spot?

IMO, the Wings can't afford to give up the first-round picks it would cost to sign Weber.

There's no way Holland sacrifices the picks... Now trading for his rights, although a very long shot as well, MAYBE

Floating an offer sheet to an RFA hasn't been something Kenny's been interested in the past based on what I've seen. Not quite sure losing out on Suter would put him & ownership in enough of a desperation mode to do that with Weber.

Shea plays for the Canucks next year IMO. But it would be interesting and probably shock the NHL world to see us offering Weber a RFA instead of waiting for him to be a UFA.

And by next year I mean after this coming season...

I'd rather try to trade and sign. Get a guarantee he will sign then trade big assets (Franzen, Fil, Ericsson, 1st) then go after Semin and Doan.

Prying an RFA out of the hands of another team is too costly. If we want to continue being a successful team and avoid a rebuilding era, we rely on those picks. Getting a player of Weber's caliber could cost us multiple first round picks. And I don't see why our division rivals would trade us his rights unless we pay out our noses.

Having to give up 50 1st round picks.

Nashville has the opportunity to match any RFA and they reportedly have the money to match the proposed contract here. Therefore, if Weber wants to leave Nashville, he may not accept a long term contract since he could end up signed to Nashville for the proposed contract.

I am have heard that Weber does not intend to sign an offer sheet because Nashville has promised to match any offer sheet he receives, so basically once he signs an offer sheet he will be a Predator. Not signing at least affords him the opportunity to leave next year.

Edit: because an & and are different words!

Weber will either test FA or get traded. I could see philly offering up a package to land him, since the preds and flyers always trade with each other.

I don't think weber would sign any offer sheet unless the prednecks tell him straight up that they won't match it. I think weber tries to force them to trade his rights.. If we do that and sign him long term, I say we win. That plus sign semin ad it's a great off season.. I'm still hopeful. Geterrdone Kenny!!

Nashville either trades him or he forces a one year contract and they lose him next year for nothing. He wont stay in Nashville now that suter left.

What would stop hom? The wings didn't offer their number one choice that much money, why would they throw more money at their number two?

Because weber is better than suter.

To clarify, I wasn't picking an exact number for the contract, just a hypothetical scenario. However I do agree that Weber is a better d-man than Suter.
