the only thing MTL would be paying 21m in signing bonuses over the first 12 months. Not something Carolina can do that easily compared to MTL

If there's one way that big market teams can fight back against teams in tax free states, it's this. Montreal can afford to basically pay anything up front. Carolina definitely cannot. But they'll match that sheet I imagine.

TSN just said the Canes only made ~25m at the gate this past year - and this contract would owe Aho 21M over the first 12 months.

Woof, this is a tough spot for the Canes.

Good. fvck them.

Offer guys a contract they won't accept and/or if accepted, their team will match.

I meant Marner, Point, Rantanen and Aho are the top RFAs available at the moment for an offer sheet. One thing though, Hughes will be up in a few years.

You REALLY shouldn’t get your hopes up on this.

Wish we offer sheeted Aho. He’s just agreed to MTL. Surprised he did because that’s a bargain for a player of his quality.

Guys, with all the talking heads on TSN pumping our tires, I'm REALLY hoping Ray pulls the trigger and goes all out for Marner....

I sort of feel like that might happen now, but I still don't get why it's a good idea.  I mean obviously it gets us a huge player, and I understand that we have the money, but giving up the required picks/assets to do so...there's so few players I feel that are worth that.  What exactly would it cost us again? I don't remember.

Thinking logically, If I'm Ray and I believe a Marner or Point is the last piece we need to be a playoff team if not a contender, I throw my offersheet to said player as soon as possible now. Don't give Carolina time to match, as once htey do [if they do], Montreal will almost certainly dive back into the market.

Realistically? 4 first round picks

But If I'm making that kind of move, I firmly believe those picks wont bring anything of value back cause we'll be a playoff team for the next four years, and hopefully a contending one at that

I think we need our second pick back from Nashville if we are to offer sheet anyone. Watch Canes keep Canadiens waiting for 7 days before matching.

I dunno, everyone always gets so hung up on the top 10 picks of the first round being the only good players in any given draft worth a damn.  It's the most likely, but lots of good players come from picks 11-31.  Hell, plenty of good picks come in rounds 2-7.  4 1sts is a hell of a lot to give up.  I dunno. I'd love Marner, or Point, or Rantanen, but I don't think I'd do that.

I would be all for an offer sheet if their were a top end D-man out there.   Don't see the need to give up top salary and 4 1sts for another C or a wing.

I agree, I go upto 10.5m @ 7y for these guys, but we dont have our 2020 2nd rounder.

I'd offer Rantanen what they offered Ahole. 

Colorado would match it in 15 minutes.
