To poison pill the contract at 1/2/3 comp, you'd have to go up over $6M a year. That ain't happening. Keep in mind the offer sheeting team is taking a risk in this. The reason Lou can say he'll match any sheet is because if it happens, it's not going to be completely retarded.
We were both wrong it turns out, lol.
Straight from NHL.com on their FA tracker page:
$1,110,249 or below None
Over $1,110,249 to $1,682,194 3rd-round choice
Over $1,682,194 to $3,364,391 2nd-round choice
Over $3,364,391 to $5,046,585 1st-round and 3rd-round choice
Over $5,046,585 to $6,728,781 1st-round, 2nd-round and 3rd-round choice
Over $6,728,781 to $8,410,976 Two 1st-round choices, one 2nd- and one 3rd-round choice
Over $8,410,976 Four first-round choices
So if someone offer sheets Henrique for more than $3.364M, we'd get a 1st and 3rd, more than $5.046M and we'd get the 1st, 2nd and 3rd. They'd have to be offering at least $3.364M to even get the team thinking about not matching. A 2nd rd pick isn't enough for Adam. A 1st and 3rd, maybe. A 1st, 2nd and a 3rd and I'm thinking real hard about it.
