Captain Shea Weber finally under contract

According to Shea Weber’s agent Jarret Bousquet told Joshua Cooper, Predators’ beat writer for The Tennessean, that Weber has officially signed the 14 year, $110 million offer sheet given to him by Nashville on July 24. It took a long time to finalize the offer sheet into a contract, but it is now done.

The two key details Weber’s agent wanted in this contract was a no-trade clause and a no-movement clause. However, the Nashville Predators didn’t include either one. 

Adding a no-trade clause to Shea Weber’s contract would mean that the Predators wouldn’t be allowed to trade him without notifying him. And adding a no-movement clause would mean the Predators can not trade, waive or send him to the minors without notifying him.

Even without the no-trade and no-movement clause, it doesn’t mean the Nashville Predators plan on trading him after July 24, 2013. The Predators just want to have control of Weber’s next destination. Declining both is a good choice because it gives Weber and his agents the advantage.
