Flyers continue to wait for decision on Weber

Posted: July 22, 2012

For the Flyers, the waiting game continues.

From the time restricted free agent Shea Weber signed his 14-year, $110 million contract offer with the Flyers, Nashville had seven days to decide whether to keep him.

On Friday, the Predators were still mulling over their decision. They can take until Wednesday at 11:30 p.m.

For Nashville, the biggest question is whether it can afford the up-front money - $27 million in the first calendar year and $68 million over the first five years.

There is a chance the teams will work out a trade in exchange for Nashville's not matching the contract.

If Nashville matches, Weber is retained by the Predators.

Weber, who turns 27 next month, is arguably the NHL's best defenseman.
