Holmgren called Nashville's bluff and said "Here's the offer sheet. Here's your 4 first round picks. Match it and pay Weber $27million within the next calendar year."

So now Nashville has lost a lot of their leverage. Any deals worked out to replace the 4 first round picks will be less value than what Holmgren previously offered IMO.
Absolutley agreed. But in my eyes they have NO leverage. Its take your picks or match, I don't want to lose anyone from the roster. Well Mesz would be ok, but NO FORWARDS!!
