Remember that time the Flyers tried to give Shea Weber $110 million?
The Nashville Predators may have foiled that plan by matching Paul Holmgren's seriously ballsy offer sheet, but there's still a pretty large contingent of Flyers fans holding out hope that Weber will someday pull on an orange and black jersey. It's not going to happen, but ... well, hope is a weird thing.
We all know he wants to play in Philadelphia (he said so), and while Nashville fans will argue that he clearly is fine with staying in the Music City long term -- he wouldn't have signed the offer sheet otherwise, right? -- there's still the belief that he could end up here. A small glimmer that's probably extremely unrealistic, but it's hope nonetheless.
The Predators are now free to trade Shea Weber to the Flyers (in a year)
