Good point. Couldn't they form a plan with Weber right now for next summer? Say Shea, hang tight for one more season and we'll make you the highest paid player in the league next July 1. OR, we'll hook you up with a max one year offer right now if you agree to go long term, if Nash matches, get rich for one season THEN we'll make you the highest paid player in the NHL. It's shady, but I'm sure it's been done before. Doesn't guarantee anything since he can use the Flyers and change his mind, but a gentleman's agreement is better than going in blind.
