The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenceman Shea Weber to a 14-year offer
sheet worth a total of $110 million. Rob Gronkowski Youth Jersey . The deal
includes $68 million in bonus money in the first six years. In total, Weber will
make $14 million in each of the first four years; $12 million in years five and
six; $6 million in each of the next four seasons; $3 million in year 11; and $1
million in each of the remaining years. “The Philadelphia Flyers have signed
restricted free agent defenseman Shea Weber to an offer sheet,” read a short
statement from the team on Thursday morning. “There will be no further comment
at this time.” The Nashville Predators have seven days to match the offer if
they wish to retain Webers services. “We are in receipt of the offer sheet
signed between the Philadelphia Flyers and Shea Weber,” said Predators GM David
Poile confirmed in a team statement on Thursday. “We have stated previously
that, should a team enter into an offer sheet with Shea, our intention would be
to match and retain Shea. Our ownership has provided us with the necessary
resources to build a Stanley Cup-winning team. Due to the complexity of the
offer sheet, we will take the appropriate time to review and evaluate it and all
of its ramifications in order to make the best decision for the Predators in
both the short and long-term. We do not anticipate any further comments on this
situation until we make our decision within the next seven days.” The
26-year-old remained a restricted free agent after failing to come to an
agreement with the Predators when his one-year, $7.5 million contract – awarded
through arbitration  expired after the season. Compensation in the form of
draft picks for the Predators should they choose not to match the Flyers offer
is tied to the average per-year cap hit of the offer sheet. It is expected the
Predators would receive four first round draft picks. The native of Sicamous, BC
is coming off back-to-back first team NHL All-Star selections. He finished the
2011-12 season with 19 goals and 49 points. The captain of the Predators has
spent seven seasons in Nashville, recording 99 goals and 263 points in 480
career NHL games. The Predators, who had 104 points last season and finished
fourth in the Western Conference, already lost free agent defenceman Ryan Suter
to the Minnesota Wild this month. Speculation is that Weber would fill the void
left by defenceman Chris Pronger, who has been battling concussion problems and
could retire. The Flyers also lost defenceman Matt Carle via free agency. He
signed a six-year, $33 million deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Chandler Jones Jersey . Mike Moser added 16
points and 18 rebounds, Oscar Bellfield had 16 points and nine rebounds, and
Anthony Marshall finished with 13 points for the Rebels (7-0). P.J. Hairston and
John Henson each had 15 points for North Carolina (5-1). Rob Gronkowski Red Jersey . And this time,
his teammates did, too. James scored 24 points – only two in the fourth quarter
and Daniel Gibson hit a dagger-like three-pointer with 12 seconds left as the
Cavaliers avoided humiliation by beating the
