If the NHL gets their way and the cap goes down, the Flyers will have to dump a couple guys, especially with Giroux having maybe an opportunity to become the highest paid player in the league in a couple years. I heard the flyers have 70 mil worth of players signed. If the Preds don't match, there may be just as many negative possibilities as positive for Philly with such a super long contract.
Signing Weber will put them right at the current cap. Putting Pronger on LTIR will put them 5M under. If the cap goes down and they have to get rid of other players, they'll do that. You don't sign Weber and become a worse team; he's too good.
