Damn this is pretty crazy. If I am Nashville you have to match this. Unless they really cannot afford him. I do have a question though, say they don't match, can they swap out some of the assets? They are in clear rebuilding mode at this point. those 4 first rounders from the Flyers will be high picks. Can they say take 3 first rounders and ask for say Harry Z, Bourdon, Gus and Manning? or something similar? I assume they would have to do a wink wink deal and just trade one of the first rounders back.

This is a pretty tough spot for the Preds though. With 4 first rounders from the Flyers and 4 from the preds, they will essentially have 8 picks in the next 4 years to get someone close to weber. I think I would ask the Flyers for some prospect/roster players in addition to 3 first rounders so they can see an impact this and next season. Pretty tough situation though.
