Top 10 reasons why the Flyers gave Shea Weber a 14-year, $110 million offer

10) Huge free agent signings always end 37-year Stanley Cup droughts

9) Helps make sure that the hatred of the team spreads to the American South

8) Franchise's eternal goal is to be more like Minnesota (who signed fellow Predator Ryan Suter a few weeks ago)

7) Signing a big name defensemen always fixes the shaky goalie problem

6) Let's just say they really aren't confident about Chris Pronger's long-term recovery chances

5) Thanks to the tireless efforts and wallets of the team's gullible fans, have the cash to spend, so what the hell

4) Believe that if you're going to pay a king's ransom for a player, might as well be for one that might fix your power play offense, too

3) It sounds like a lot, but not when you realize that they are going to play him at least 30 minutes a game, sign an autograph for every ticket holder at every game, work post-game concessions and drive the Zamboni

2) Makes everyone forget losing out on Suter, Zach Parise, Matt Carle and Jaromir Jagr, and the fact that I can list all four of those names is making the blog's four hockey fans more than a little giddy that I'm finally starting to care about hockey again (as if)

1) Signing a Canadian Olympic hero always gives the Flyers an extra thrill, since their Cup win over the Canadians back in the '70s might have been the worst thing to ever happen to that country
