Apparently they're not as devious as Philly in offering such a predatory offer sheet. Plus the Canucks have some history with offer sheets creating bad blood between them and other teams.

Anyway it seems clear that while the Canucks thought to themselves "Man we'd really like to have Weber and maybe we could put in an offer sheet for him, buuut the Predators will probably match and Poile will be furious", the Flyers thought to themselves "Man we'd really like to have Weber so let's create an offer sheet that's as difficult as possible for Nashville to match, **** Poile!".
Yes, other teams should create offer sheets easy for Nashville to match so they don't get the player they are trying to and make it easy for NASHVILLE to retain said player?
