Now before people go off half cocked just remember all of these teams had a chance to negotiate contracts with these players for fair market value before the day after the NHL draft or file for arbitration.
As soon as an offersheet is put down as an NHL GM i would look at the other RFA's on the team and find the one I like and put an offer sheet down.
So here is how it works. Edmonton gets Dougie Hamilton to sign to a 5 year 37.5 m offer sheet.
So me being a brilliant yet maniacal GM signs Brett Connolly a 4 yr 13 M offer sheet and Ryan Spooner to a 3 year 5.4 Million Offer sheet since I think both are immediately plugged in upgrades to my lineup.
There is a 75% chance I get one of my players and 50/50 chance I get both that and I just put Boston in even worse cap hell taking them out of contending for a year or 2 more.
Combinations to Consider:
Dougie Hamilton, Brett Connolly, Ryan Spooner
Jonathan Huberdeau, Alex Petrovic, Quinton Howden
Mike Hoffman, Mark Stone, Alex Chaisson
Marcus Johansson, Kuznetsov, Holtby
Martin Jones, Tyler Toffoli, Nick Shore
David Runblad, Brandon Saad, Marcus Kruger
