Also replying to Edgy who asked the same question, I'm not sure the reason why but I believe a team can take a player to arbitration once, and MTL seems to love to give out a 2nd short term team after players ELC, ex Eller,Diaz, Patches, DD, Weber, Price, etc all got only 2 year deals after their ELC, and after that is up, I think MTL would just rather use it when the 2nd contract is up, because the 3rd contract is usually the big contract, ex if Habs took Price to arbitration after his ELC, the Habs could have been in a whole if Price got a crazy offersheet say like from the Leafs.
Also I believe Subban had the choice to file for arbitration as well but didn't.
Overall it would be a big waste of time for the Flyers, I mean the only reason they did the Weber offersheet was because they had a good chance of Nashville not matching because of all the upfront money. Same structure would have no impact on the Habs.
