Title says it all. Reported 14yr ~100Million. As per Dregger, discuss!

I'm up past my bed time and I don't even know where to start with this... Do the Preds have money to match or will they take what they can and run (compensation).

They have the money, will match even though it's going to cost them $26m over the first calander year, then will trade him to the pens 365 days later just to piss off philly :D

also it could be as high as $130m over the 14 years, exact details not released

Sounds like it is $110M over 14 years ($7.86M cap hit?). Compensation I've heard to be 4 (likely lame) 1st rounders since the cap hit on a >5 year offer sheet is measured over 5 years.

This isn't the first offer-sheet by the Flyers in the new CBA (and well, we don't hear of them all either). Bobby Clarke tried to land Ryan Kesler back in 2006.
