However, I don't think he'd do it. Trading Weber for what would be a significant reduction on their asking price 2 years ago purely because of the Flyers offersheet would be a huge dent to Polie's and Nashville's pride. But, if they want to get the maximum value possible without trading him out West, the Flyers will certainly be the team to provide it. IMO of course.
Honestly, if the Flyers were the best offer by enough margin to ignore the same conference issues, I'm sure Poile makes the deal. Unfortunately, I don't know that we could or would make the best offer without setting ourselves back significantly in other areas. We need to do a better job of drafting and developing talent to be able to make moves like a Weber trade.
