3) He also said that an OS is unlikely, because Weber would realize that Nashville will match any offer. He suggested that, baring a long-term extension, the most likely outcome is that Weber signs his QO and Poile shops him.

Given all that, and given the Flyers natural interest in Weber, I thought it might make sense to start a thread for Weber-specific speculation, proposals, etc.

EDIT: MODs, forgive this thread if it is out of line, but since there's a separate one for Ryan and Nash, this seemed logical.
Help me out here. Weber is a Group 3 UFA according to the NHL website. Why would the Flyers have to do any kind of deal with the Preds. Couldn't they deal directly with Weber?
