Fifteen N.H.L. players attended Thursday’s
Fifteen N.H.L. wholesale rayban sunglasses players attended Thursday’s negotiating session. One of them, Shane Doan, said he found nothing objectionable about the Flyers’ offer to Weber. “Philadelphia’s trying to do everything it can under the current C.B.A. to get one of the finest defensemen in the world,” he said. “We don’t mind the whole offer-sheet thing.” Doan, the Phoenix captain, also said he was awaiting the outcome of the Coyotes’ arena situation before deciding whether to re-sign with the team or sign with another. Bill Daly, the N.H.L.’s deputy commissioner, said the Weber offer was mentioned “in a lighthearted way” during the collective bargaining negotiating session. He said that there was nothing unusual about the Flyers’ offer. “We have a collective bargaining oakley sunglasses clearance agreement that doesn’t expire until Sept. 15, and clubs are operating their businesses consistent with the current terms of our collective bargaining agreement,” Daly said. “That’s the way it should be.”It is extremely rare for an N.H.L. team to extend an offer sheet to a restricted free agent — Weber’s is only the fourth since 2007. The last one was extended to Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson by San Jose in 2010 for four years and $14 million. The Blackhawks matched it. The Flyers may have been motivated in Weber’s case by the desire to offer a lucrative long-term contract before a new, potentially stricter collective bargaining agreement takes effect. N.H.L. general managers see offer sheets ray ban clearance as unsporting and salary-inflating, and the occasional offers have led to bitter feuds.
