Of course there's the option of just taking the comp-picks, but personally I'd rather have the one more year of Weber.
Must suck to have most of your players desperately scrambling to get out of town.
If you're that team that Weber wants to play for though, do you one-year offer-sheet him and give up the picks
... or wait one more year and get him as a UFA?
Well that "one" team that Weber wants to play for, then you have to consider that your top line is getting older, there really isn't a ready replacement for them quite yet, and your window to win with said group is getting a little smaller. May as well maximize the number of years that such a team would have WITH Weber, and also go all out and show the guy that you want him too.
