Mashville would essentially have to choose between having Weber for one year and hoping they can sign him long-term but risk losing him for nothing, or taking the picks and walking away. I wouldn't be surprised if any team team used this tactic on Weber. Would piss a lot of people off, but damn it would be a good strategy to use. Either guarantee he's going to be a UFA next season (assuming he won't sign with Mashville) or get him on your team this season.
Toronto won't offer sheet Schneider as Burke hates offer sheets..
With Weber it's a bit different.. I see a few teams sending him offer sheets.. But if it's not giving Nashville 4 1sts, I don't see them letting him walk.. But no one is going to risk 4 1st for 1 year of him
