I guess Holmgren's thinking is that he'd rather Weber go to Philly or stay in Nashville. Nashville is gonna have a tough time competing now and aren't much of a threat for a cup anyways. If Weber was an UFA next year, he could have chosen NYR, Vancouver, Detroit, etc which could directly impact Philly's chance at a cup.

P.S Weber is an idiot. Next year might have been his only taste of UFA and now he's locked in for the rest of his career. He didn't even get a chance to get wined and dined and choose his destination.
