<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>LumberJacques</b></div><div>I agree with pretty much everything you wrote, however I feel like Weber's situation needed a little more context.

His contract does seem intimidating but at the end of the day it's not as bad as it looks. He's already making less actual money than his cap hit while still playing at a high level.

The term looks bad but he actually makes only $6 million TOTAL over the last 4 seasons of that deal. At that point his estimated career earnings from contracts alone will be over $130 million. I very much doubt that he will keep playing if he is no longer effective at that point.

To conclude, Shea Weber's contract is essentially 2 more years (after this season) and however long he is still effective after that.

I agree that it is extremely unlikely that he is moved again in his career, but his contract is not nearly as bad as it appears from the outside.</div></div>

Exactly! In 3 years, he'll earn 3M, then 1M for the rest of the contract, the guy will most likely retire if he gets bumped to 7th D. Its not like he's leaving 7M each year.

Also, he plays like a Chara, his game is not build on speed - so age wont affect his game as much as it will affect Subban's game.
