    Shea Weber had signed an offer sheet with the Flyers.

    The Flyers search for defense continued Tuesday after the Nashville Predators announced they matched the Flyers monstrous offer to restricted free agent Shea Weber.

    Last week Weber signed a frontloaded 14-year, $110-million offer sheet with the Flyers. It was unclear if the small market Predators could afford to match the deal but on Tuesday they announced they inked their captain.

    With the three-time All-Star Weber back in Music City, the Flyers must look elsewhere for a player capable of replacing Chris Pronger -- who missed much of last season with a head injury -- on the blue line.
