Rumors are circulating around that the Nashville Predators are letting teams know that Shea Weber will be available on July 24th. Plenty of Teams will be interested and the Predators will be flooded with calls.
If the Predators were to trade Weber, they would likely want the team to help out with the $13 million signing bonus that is due on July 1st.
The two teams that could get into a bidding war for Weber would be the Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers. The Predators would want Yakopov or Eberle as part of a deal for Weber.
There is no way Weber goes to Deadmonton. If he is traded it will be to Vancouver, Philadelphia, or Montreal.
Where us your source coming from, I seriously doubt that the Oilers will be willing to move Eberle, I see them making a trade for a different D-man who would not completely ruin there salary cap, I dont think Weber would make them a serious contender, I belive they would need more then just Weber; (Though he is a very good Defenceman obviously.) I see Toronto’s Franson, or ever Carl Gunnarsson as targets, and if they do acquire one of them, they will need to add another steady D-man to seriously compete, but god knows they will have to part ways with one of the young talented forwards to acquire more back end talent.
