So let's just say the match, Weber now can't be traded within the next full year. That means he's going to the market on July 1 2013 or resigns with Nashville. When he goes to free agency everything we saw the last couple of days will be seen as peanuts.
Maybe, but that's not a bad scenario for the Flyers either. If Nashville matches, the trade-and-extend scenario goes out the window. Weber would be guaranteed to hit the open market on July 1, 2013.
Personally, I would pump the one-year offer up as high as the Flyers can fit under the cap. It's a gesture of commitment to Weber that could help us re-sign him and doesn't have long-term cap consequences.
