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
I think I would risk it. The Flyers are going to have an extra $6 million in cap space when Timonen comes off the books. I'd be happy to give every dime to Weber and let Gus play on the bottom pair at $900k or whatever he makes. I suppose the risk is that Weber doesn't like it Philly and decides not to stay regardless of the contract offer, but it could be a risk worth taking IMO.
