08:16 AM ET 07.26 | Shea Weber, in his first public comments since the Predators matched a 14-year offer sheet for him, expressed enthusiasm for returning to Nashville. He also said he hopes to finish his career here. Those comments were in contrast to those of Weber's agent, who in recent days said Weber wanted to play in Philadelphia -- because the Predators were in a "rebuilding" stage and because the Predators didn't have a track record of signing top free agents. "I guess that was [agent Jarrett Bousquet's] feelings," Weber said. "Like I said, I was never a part of any of that. I didn't make any statements publicly. I love the city of Nashville. I love the fans and my teammates."

Bottom line. "I am happy with my 100 mil. and I LUV anyone who gives it to me."

Can't argue with that sentiment

What do you think he will say now publicly??? Contract is signed...done deal....its all rainbows and cotten candy......I still think he pursued the offer sheet from Philly because other than Nashville, that is where he wanted to go, not thinking Preds would match..but they did and now he is in love with Nashville and the Preds...I too could possibly feel the same way if my bank account had just increased tremendously.....

When in doubt and large sums of money are involved they are all liars and you have to sift through the crap to find the truth.

Not to me. Nothing epitomizes ethics, principles, and integrity like an agent.

I heard before he had his "troubles" the Buttgoblin wanted him as an owner.

He's still being considered for the Coyotes. They say he'll have to be released from prison first. In 147 years.
