Do you mean negotiate an offer sheet?

The Flyers could send Weber an absurd 12 year, $120 million contract, and Nashville, at this point, would probably still match it.

The only deal Nashville wouldn't match would be something like 1 year, $13 million--which is insanely stupid for the Flyers to do, since they would forfeit 4 first round picks for one (guaranteed) year of service.

EDIT: Sounds like something is wrong or mischaracterized on the website. Weber is RFA, not UFA.
Sorry, I thought Unrestricted means he's free to do what he wants. If the Preds still have control of him I would think that would mean he was a group 2 player. If he was group two that would match up to what you said about the draft picks. Here's what I was looking at (scroll down to the bottom to see conditions)

Can see why I'm confused?
