Nashville pretty much had to match it. It's one thing to trade him prior to the offer sheet, it's another to lose him for draft picks. The Preds are just a farm team at that point, and why bother being in the NHL if that's the case.

Now they have a world class goalie, still have one(which is more than most teams) world class defenseman, and an overall team that has been to the 2nd round the last two years. If they can bring in one of those late summer value type free agents, someone that clearly won't replace Suter, but can help mitigate the loss of Suter in some area, that's still a solid playoff team.
