Another dead end in hunt for Hoffa DETROIT - Like many others that came before it, the latest search for former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa has come up empty. Tests on soil samples gathered last week from a backyard in a Detroit suburb showed no traces that Hoffa - or anyone else - was buried there, police in Roseville, Mich., announced Tuesday. "Our department just received the soil sample report from Michigan State University, after a battery of tests; the samples submitted for examination showed no signs of human decomposition," the police statement read.

Snowboarder Shaun White apologized for an outburst at a hotel in Nashville that led police to charge him with vandalism and public intoxication. A two-time Olympic gold medalist, the 26-year-old White was alleged to have pulled a fire alarm while staying at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, causing the evacuation of all guests, and an employee said he saw White destroy a hotel phone, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department. "I want to apologize for the unwise choices I made over the weekend and for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests," White, who is also a professional skateboarder, said in a statement on his Facebook page.

Having failed in his bold attempt to add restricted free-agent defenseman Shea Weber, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren will try a more conventional method to improve his team. "Now we move forward and see what we can do," Holmgren said in a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, one day after Nashville retained Weber by matching the Flyers' 14-year, $110 million offer sheet. Holmgren said he did not plan to pursue any other restricted free agents, such as the Rangers' Michael Del Zotto or Montreal's P.K. Subban.

PAUL HOLMGREN has been around the NHL nearly his entire life, first as a player, then as a head coach, before spending the last 20 years in the front office of two different clubs. Holmgren admitted on Wednesday that he has never experienced a summer like this, never felt the pain walking away empty-handed on three major free agents — the latest blow dealt when Nashville matched Shea Weber's 14-year, $110 million offer sheet on Tuesday. "I am sure it has been done before," Holmgren said of his summer.

LAST WEDNESDAY, Paul Holmgren polished off his wooden bat and attempted to hit the Flyers' biggest home run since Eric Lindros. On Tuesday, Holmgren officially swung and missed — through no fault of his own. The Nashville Predators finally decided, after a few days of tense deliberation between their large ownership group, to swallow hard and match the 14-year, $110 million offer sheet for franchise cornerstone defenseman Shea Weber....

The Flyers have struck out with another marquee free agent - and this one hurt more than the others. Nashville announced Tuesday afternoon that it had matched the Flyers' 14-year, $110 million offer sheet to star defenseman Shea Weber, a restricted free agent. Small-market Nashville had toppled the big-market Flyers, leaving them empty-handed in their search to replace the injured Chris Pronger. Earlier in the day, two sources said the Predators had not been involved in trade talks with the Flyers since the 6-foot-4, 232-pound Weber signed the offer sheet last Wednesday.

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.

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.

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.
