But yeah, I was just curious what Preds fans would want to do IF Weber accepted a 1 year offer sheet around 8 million, the compensation of two 1st rounders, 2nd rounder and 3rd rounder.

Would you just take the compensation and move on OR match it, keep Weber around for one year and lose him for nothing next summer.
Yet 5 of 6 offer sheets since the lockout were matched. They are a negotiating tool. Matching includes accepting the bonus structure, term, etc.
