Could the Preds move Weber this Summer?
The way Nashville general manager David Poile stocked up with younger defensemen this season seems to indicate the Predators may be willing to part with Shea Weber’s gargantuan contract this summer. Wouldn’t surprise anyone. If that happens, you can be certain the Flyers will be a major player.
Again, Weber is the kind of impact defenseman the Flyers need. He is the type of player worth unloading major talent/prospects for. Yet this is not the kind of deal that will happen at the trade deadline. Makes little financial sense to do it now when Poile can command so much more at the draft, which happens to be in Philadelphia this summer.
