Yeah I don’t like the baseball-like unwritten rule that you shouldn’t offer-sheet a player. The system encourages/forces young players to stay put, and in exchange protects them from being truly lowballed.

What I was implying (poorly obviously) was that Aho wanted in excess of 9 million per which Carolina refused to pay.

I find it interesting that all of a sudden Montreal swoops in with an offer sheet of 8.45 which, yes I don't know how much Carolina was offering but seems to help them out of that situation because now they get to save face by matching the offer. This is probably me with my tinfoil hat on I just find it strange considering offer sheets are so rarely used.

I'm honestly pleased by that amount since it helps with the Marner talks on our end though.

Montreal offered that amount because it was the maximum they could offer before the offer sheet would have been 4 1st round picks... and 4 Montreal 1st round picks look fantastic in this coming half decade.

But again, you’re missing the fact that Aho didn’t have to accept the offer.

It reeks much more of Montreal desperation than collusion.

Well, the Isles will be returning to the Island and finally getting a suitable arena. Too bad they couldn't get it before JT left.
