But that's not the point either, it's Shea Weber and if it means Philly loses Voracek or whoever then fine cos he's worth it.
It's not a unique situation with the Flyers , They did this a couple of time in the past. Chris Gratton, when he was playing in Tampa receved an offert sheet from the Flyers in the late 90's . The Flyers did it again with Ryan Kesler , i think it was in 2006 , i'm not exactly sure of the date for that last one .

As for the Oilers , they did the same with Penner and Vanek.
