Can't see why Nashville wouldn't match, though. They were prepared, at the very least, to pay Suter and Weber $16 million combined for the first few years, and probably higher than that(I believe Poile said he was disappointed his didn't have the opportunity to match Suter's offer). The most they'll pay Weber through the first couple years is less than that, and they can't afford to lose him for so little.
Agreed. I'm very curious to see what Nashville does. Philly could be doing them a huge favor, even though I find the method repulsive
