Maybe Couts would make me feel a little better.

But, I don't think Philly goes for this. I'm assuming, since we were allegedly working on shopping Weber prior to this offer sheet, that Philly wasn't willing to give up whatever we were asking for in a trade. So what motivation is there for them to trade us players to get their picks back? I don't trust Holmgren; what's to stop him from being like "Oh, just kidding" once we don't match and Weber is his?

I guess if Holmgren truly thinks Poile will match it puts a little more pressure on him...but do they really need Weber THAT badly? I know they need a replacement for Pronger and Timonen is getting old, but they're not in dire straits defensively like say, the Red Wings are.

I see this transaction, whenever we announce our intentions, to be very straight-up: either we match, or we don't and we take the picks.
