I assume you have a link to go with this? Forgive me for not taking you at your word, I just happen to have years of experience in deal negotiation, and I've never actually seen someone negotiate in this way (unless another company has paid for exclusive negotiating rights).

I highly doubt that Nashville began speaking with other teams only after Philly wouldn't match what they asked for. And beyond that, Weber's agent is quoted as saying his client had no desire to play for the Rangers / to live in Manhattan. So, sorry, I'm not buying the whole "Homer did it to prevent him from going to the Rangers" angle.
