Little bitter that the Sharks GM doesn't have balls enough to do something like that. If Poile had did his job early last year then none of this would have taken place. Quite obviously Weber would have preferred to go to Philly but he knew full well that Nashville could match. Or maybe all he cared about was getting his money and didn't matter if it was Nashville or Philly, no one will know for sure. But hopefully now that he is signed with Nashville that he honours the contract and doesn't pull a Rick Nash and want out if Nashville doesn't remain a contender.

As a Flyer fan, I'm glad Holmgren took the chances, he has made some bad decisions in the past when it comes to signing players but this isn't one of those times. He tried to make the Flyers better by getting a franchise defenseman. As a fan that's all you can ask the GM of the team you cheer for does.
