I think weber signed the offersheet, because a.) he wouldn't mind playing for the flyers. and b.) because the types of offers and directions talks had gone he felt this the best offer he could get.

I can't blame a man too much for wanting to get paid. Hopefully for Nashville Weber will be content there.
you only have to match an offer sheet in principle. No extra bells and whistles beyond dollars and years. I agree that he signed the deal because he wanted the money, wouldn't mind the flyers and wouldn't mind staying with the Preds. Put himself into a win-win situation instead of potentially being traded to a team he didn't want to play for.
