They may want more, but they'd hardly laugh.
It's a figure of speech meant to illustrate how poor of a choice the inclusion of Gustafsson was in your offer. Gustafsson wouldn't have much value to Nashville. He is a decent NHL defenseman prospect at best. Other teams could easily beat that part of the offer. And Richards and Carter weren't elite superstar players. Weber is arguably the best player at his position in the NHL.

There are plenty of other teams who could blow the Flyers away if Nashville was looking for young defenseman in return plus high picks.
No question.

So maybe not Gustafsson; maybe Wellwood. Different player, same point.

That said, the idea of trading for both Weber and Suter has me intrigued.

Wellwood is as bad of a choice as Gustafsson is. So yea, the point is the same. You need to make a better offer if you want Weber. But I hope your right. I hope Nashville wants Gustafsson and Wellwood. Hell I'll throw both of them in there.
