WITH FOUR NIGHTS to contemplate keeping Shea Weber for the next 14 years, the Nashville Predators have yet to make a decision whether to match the $110 million offer sheet the Flyers tendered the star defenseman last Wednesday. When contacted by the Daily News on Sunday, Predators CEO Jeff Cogen referred to the original statement issued by the team on Thursday. Similarly, the Flyers have not heard anything yet as to the Predators' intentions. In their statement, Nashville general manager David Poile said they 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.

An NHL source with knowledge of the situation said on Sunday night that Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren and his Nashville counterpart, David Poile, have talked "just once" since restricted free-agent Shea Weber signed a 14-year, $110 million contract with Philadelphia on Wednesday. That fuels speculation that Nashville is thinking about sending Weber, arguably the league best all-around defenseman, to the Flyers in a trade. If Nashville was going to match the offer, there would be no need for Poile to confer with Holmgren.

Presented as the first centerpiece for a new franchise, goalie Mike Dunham yesterday pulled on a white, navy, gold and silver jersey adorned with the head of an angry cat with a serious overbite, and the Nashville Predators were officially born as the NHL's 27th team. After plucking one unprotected player from each of the 26 existing teams at the expansion draft in the Marine Midland Arena, Nashville general manager David Poile said that he and coach Barry Trotz placed speed and character as their top priorities.

The Flyers have added more defensive depth, acquiring Janne Niskala from the Nashville Predators in exchange for forward Triston Grant and a seventh-round draft pick next year. Niskala, 26, had 19 goals and 25 assists in 80 regular-season games for the Predators' Milwaukee affiliate. He was second among AHL defensemen in goals, and was a member of the bronze medal-winning Team Finland at the IIHF World Championships. Before joining the Predators' last season, Niskala played parts of the previous seven seasons with teams in top European leagues.

KEVIN KLEIN scored a go-ahead goal 6:25 into the third period and Pekka Rinne made 40 saves, lifting the Nashville Predators to a 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night and a 3-1 lead in the first-round Western Conference playoff series. The Predators, who have won both games in Detroit, can eliminate Detroit in Game 5 on Friday night in Nashville. Predators rookie Gabriel Bourque broke a scoreless tie 1:55 into the third period. Detroit's Niklas Kronwall tied it 1:19 later with a power-play goal that was waved off on the ice but reversed by video review.

The Flyers yesterday acquired defenseman Janne Niskala from the Nashville Predators in exchange for forward Triston Grant and a seventh-round pick in next year's draft. The 6-foot, 200-pound Niskala, 26, totaled 19 goals and 25 assists in 80 games last season for the Milwaukee Admirals, Nashville's American Hockey League affiliate. His 19 goals tied him for second among AHL defensemen. Before joining the Predators organization last year, Niskala played parts of seven seasons with three European League clubs.

Wayne Gretzky showed off some more of his magic last night. In his only visit to Music City in what could be his final season, Gretzky had five assists in helping the New York Rangers end a three-game losing streak with a 7- 4 victory over the Nashville Predators. The youthful expansion team looked a little star-struck by Gretzky, especially early, as he set up two of the Rangers' four first- period goals. "If you are brain-dead against Wayne Gretzky, I mean, he can set my 4-year-old son up to score if you leave him alone," said Predators captain Tom Fitzgerald.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman yesterday said talk of the Nashville Predators relocating to Hamilton, Ontario, is premature. Bettman pointed out that there is not a binding agreement between Predators owner Craig Leipold and Canadian billionaire Jim Balsillie. Leipold and Balsillie, the co-CEO of BlackBerry maker Research In Motion, agreed to a term sheet for the transfer of ownership of the club, but that is nonbinding. The delay in closing the deal prevented the sale from being up for vote by the league's 30 teams before this weekend's draft in Columbus, Ohio.

The Flyers made a trade yesterday, exchanging prospects with the Nashville Predators. Phantoms defenseman Mikhail Chernov, 22, was traded even-up for 25-year-old left winger-center Mike Watt. Watt has four years of NHL experience, with scattered ice time for Edmonton, the New York Islanders and Nashville. Given the Flyers' need to fortify left wing and center, this is purely a depth move. "We liked him since his days at Michigan State," said Flyers assistant general manager Paul Holmgren of the former collegian and second round pick in 1994.

WHEN CRAIG Berube replaced Peter Laviolette three games into the 2013-14 season, the Flyers were a mess. After failing to make the playoffs in the lockout-shortened previous season, they had lost their first three games of the new season and looked absolutely awful doing so. Paul Holmgren said it was a "gut" decision, canning a coach who had guided the team to a Stanley Cup finals appearance three seasons before. Owner Ed Snider said he had never seen his team have a worse preseason.

NASHVILLE - The momentum the Flyers built with three straight road wins was halted by the three-day holiday break and the Nashville Predators on Saturday night. The Flyers' passing wasn't sharp, their special teams were atrocious, and they didn't come close to scoring on a five-on-three advantage for the first 58 seconds of the second period. As a result, they dropped a 4-1 decision to Nashville and star goalie Pekka Rinne at Bridgestone Arena, enabling Predators coach Peter Laviolette to win his first matchup against his former team.

NASHVILLE - For the first time since he was fired three games into last season, Peter Laviolette, now the head coach of the Nashville Predators, will face the Flyers on Saturday night in Music City. Jake Voracek can't wait. "I'm sure he's going to be pretty fired up," said Voracek, the Flyers' coming-of-age right winger who leads the NHL with 46 points, "and I'm pretty excited about it. " The Flyers will make their fourth stop on a critical eight-game road trip. They are 3-0 on the trip, averaging 5.3 goals per game.

FOR DAYS, or even weeks, the Nashville Predators have been linked to Vinny Lecavalier in trade rumors. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall gave permission to Lecavalier's agent, Kent Hughes, to orchestrate his client's departure from Philadelphia. Nashville, hungry for offense, seemed like the perfect landing spot. Lecavalier, 34, was wooed to the Flyers by Peter Laviolette last summer. He is now at the helm in Nashville. The Predators are thin down the middle in an unmerciful Western Conference.

The clock continues to tick for the Nashville Predators, who must decide by 11:30 p.m. Wednesday whether to match the Flyers' 14-year, $110 million offer to restricted free-agent Shea Weber. "We have no clue what's going to happen," Kevin Epp, one of Weber's agents, said Monday night. "We're all in a state of limbo. " Epp believes that the size of Nashville's ownership group - 10 people - may be slowing the process. "There's a lot of owners who have to get together to make the decision," he said.

WHEN SHEA WEBER and his traveling party surreptitiously arrived in Philadelphia nearly 2 weeks ago to first discuss the idea of signing an offer sheet with the Flyers, his agent told him to soak in the entire experience. "When you sign a 14-year deal, you need to look around and make sure," agent Jarrett Bousquet told the Daily News. "You need to make sure everything checks out, that it fits your lifestyle, that you want to live in a big city instead of a small town. Everything has to work.
