NHL Free Agency 2012: Possible Philadelphia Flyers Leaving for Shea Weber

The offer sheet the Philadelphia Flyers and Shea Weber agree to has become one of the hottest topics in the NHL.

Weber's former team, the Nashville Predators, are running out of time to match it. Assuming Nashville does not match the offer, which is a very strong possibility given the financial terms of the deal, the Predators would receive four first-round picks from the Flyers (via The Inquirer).

That might be a hard sell for both teams, as Nashville wouldn't have much in the near future to show their fans and the Flyers would be without a first-round pick when the NHL Entry Draft comes to Philly. 

The Flyers also likely want to do everything they can to ensure they land Weber.

That all combines to mean that the Flyers likely will part with some players in return for one or two of their own draft picks (Boston Herald).

These are the more likely candidates to be sent to the Predators, excluding players not certain to be NHL players next season, and how likely they are to be playing in Nashville next year.
