With the business side of hockey out of the way, Shea Weber is happy he's free to focus on one thing now: winning.
One day after the Nashville Predators chose to match the 14-year, $110 million offer sheet the defenseman signed with the Philadelphia Flyers, Weber said Wednesday he is excited to know he'll likely be spending the rest of his career with the organization that chose him in the second round of the 2003 NHL Draft.

Weber, a restricted free agent, signed the largest offer sheet in NHL history July 18, giving the Predators until July 25 to match. Nashville general manager David Poile had said all along the franchise would match any offer sheet that came Weber's way, and the two-time Norris Trophy runner-up said he was happy to see it live up to its word.
