Shea Weber's potential retirement would have a significant impact on the Predators' payroll

Nashville Predators general manager David Poile must be praying every night that Shea Weber doesn't retire.


As we all know, the Tennessee team will have to keep a huge chunk of Weber's salary on their payroll, should the number 6 officially retire.

Marc-Olivier Beaudoin, an insider on occasion, revealed the exact amount of that penalty. The amount would be $6.1 million for four seasons, which is an incredibly high amount.

While the Habs would have a penalty of $214,000 for four years, which seems reasonable.

Ideally, the Habs would trade Weber's pact to Nashville to avoid such a penalty, but of course, David Poile would have to pay Kent Hughes an interesting compensation in return.
