Huge risk though if we got him for 4 firsts and he walks from us next year. And we couldn't trade him or sign him to an extension during the year, correct?

Too much risk with the 1 yr option IMO.
Big risk, big reward.

On the one hand, it's hard to see Weber voluntarily coming to the Flyers on a one year qualifying offer that costs 4 1st round picks, taking $10 M+ from the organization and then refusing a $100 M+ contract to skip town at the end of the season. That would be diabolical.

But you never know.
