Not really. While Philly fans are ridiculously in love with Holmgren, this was a situation where he couldn't lose. Nashville matched, so Weber stays in the West on the team that drafted him. The team is severely hamstrung for at least a year most likely due to the design of the contract. Philly's no worse off than the day before they submitted the offer sheet.
