Poile is taking his time matching just to stick it to Homer. Until the Weber situation is resolved, Homer can't do anything else (e.g., Doan, Ryan).
The other thing being kicked around on some other boards is the idea of Nashville letting Weber go, taking the Flyers 4 picks, and packaging them with some of their own picks to get quality players from team(s) other than the Flyers. It's possible the delay could be partly due to Poile trying to figure out his options from that perspective.
