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.

You know what... part of me is saying "**** it, just go for it"...

Obviously we might have to do some questionable things before attempting this path ("Hey Shea, even though we can only offer you a one-year max contract right now, how would you feel about being a Philadelphia Flyer for a really long time?"... along with suggestive winking and nudging).
