2.) If Poile matches, sure he gets Weber for another year at a reasonable salary, but then is very likely to lose Weber next year for nothing at all because he can't trade Weber once he matches the offersheet.

This is the scenario that puts pressure on Poile to trade Weber now if he won't re-sign, before a no-win offer sheet arrives.
Exactly. That's what I was getting at. What better way for a team to hurt the Nashville franchise. I was just throwing out the Oilers as a possible team to offer sheet, since their number one picks are more expendable.
