I think Poile was delinquent in not signing Suter and Weber to longer term deals when they were younger and locking them up then vs waiting till UFA/RFA. Unless both players decided years ago long term Nashville would never really contend due to financial reasons and they wanted to play their contracts out and test the market. Plus Weber is on record of wanting to play for a contender. Nashville has done a remarkable job in that regard. But the Flyers go for it every year.

Biggest shot across the bow however will be the have not owners going to war with the have owners in the CBA. This contract will be the prize for the NHLPA who will argue that the league can fix its problems from NFL style revenue sharing and not take from players pockets to do so.
