Around the 9 min mark they discuss Weber, They said the deal put together by the
Flyers & Weber's Agents is to complex & rich for the Predators and the talk
around the league is that the Predators won't be able to match. They also say
it sounds like they will just take the picks and look around the league to
trade those picks for roster players, Flyers offered a good deal and Predators
turned it down. I guess they were looking for a Lindros like deal. Screw them let
them have the picks.
We will see. I think the flyers wanted to send Jake in a deal to clear cap space and the headache of signing him.....
I have zero problem giving up just picks.....its not 4 #1s from what I take so it isn't that bad plus we can always make trades to get #1 picks.......
