So Shea Weber was awarded $7.5M in arbitration this year and the Nashville predators accepted the award last week. What does it all mean? Well I'm with Puckdaddy and for the rest of this years UFA and RFA class I don't think it means anything much.
Now next year will it matter? Well for Weber who will be UFA eligable it should mean something and it could also mean something for one member of the Washington Capitals - Mike Green. Simply put like Weber and Drew Doughty, Mike Green is one of those elite young defensemen. He's been nominated for two Norris Trophies and has many years and more potential to get even better left in his career. What happens with Weber and Doughty this year could potnetially affect what happens with Mike Green next year. However, what exactly that means is still anybody's guess.
Okay, now talk amoungst yourselves.
