It's always sunny in Philadelphia. Unless rain comes in from Nashville.

if you guys end up coughing up Coots and or Schenn(s), then you know Homer just had to have Weber but tried everything he could to avoid giving them up before caving...
if you give up lesser pieces, like Meszaros and/or Read, then Homer wanted him, AND Poile didn't have the authority to match so he waited til the last and took the best he could get.
if the Preds match, then it means Holmgren took his best shot but could live without Weber
if the Preds pass and only get the 4 picks, then Holmgren was prepared to lose out on Weber but Poile wasn't authorized to match.
I agree 100%
But no way is coots/schenn moving. I'd say voracek is the piece that indicates homer caved.
Regardless, the teams aren't talking it's match or 4 picks.
