Predators lock up Weber
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed defenseman Shea Weber to a three-year, $13.5 million contract.Still only 23, Weber's one of the most underrated players in the league. His season last year was derailed by an awful knee injury, but he's going to be a great one.
“Shea has evolved into one of our core players,” Poile said. “He is both a player and a person that every team covets. He is big and strong, skates well, and possesses a booming shot. Shea has also been a part of championship teams from the Memorial Cup in 2004 and the World Junior Championship in 2005, to the World Championships in Russia last summer.”>> team release
With Ellis, Suter and Weber locked up, the Predators will have a club that looks a lot like the one that made the playoffs last season.
