Philly is a known team for offer sheet usage...they've done it in the past. Not a surprise they tried it.
Now, this doesn't mean Nashville won't match either, as Vancouver certainly matched when Philly did this for Kesler.
I think Weber just wants a deal done now, and I don't think this means he's against staying in Nashville, as he knows doing this now means it's a strong possibility, when if he waits a year, he can guarantee he won't be back there.
Come to think of it...I think Weber did this to force a long term deal that may not even be available after the new CBA. Everyone is expecting the cap circumvention deals will be gone after that....possible contract length limitations.
