If Weber ends up in Philly, could the Sharks take advantage of the Flyers' precarious salary cap situation?

Flyers tender Shea Weber an offer sheet for a crapload of money


According to Darren Dreger, the Flyers have tendered restricted free agent and superstar blueliner Shea Weber a 14-year offer sheet worth upwards of $100 million, the first offer sheet to be signed in the NHL since Doug Wilson's offer to Niklas Hjalmarsson two summers ago. Since offer sheet compensation is determined by the total salary of the contract divided only by its first five years, Nashville would be entitled to four first-rounders should they choose not to match. David Poile and the Predators will have seven days to make that decision and, although stranger things have happened, it seems like a safe bet they'll match. Losing Weber and Suter in the same summer and receiving nothing of value in return (picks in the 20-30 range, on average, really don't amount to much) would be crippling for that franchise. And, of course, while it's good to see more teams utilizing this option, the irony of owners whining about their bottom line while throwing around this kind of cash should not be lost on anyone. This is why we can't have nice things.
