Best RFAs Available: Who would you offer sheet and for how much?

12 posts in this topic

Hey guys, so i know that depending on the money you have to give up high draft picks and the other team has a chance to match but i was wondering why teams haven't submitted offer sheets to some pretty good RFAs. You would think a team would be willing to give up a few first rounders for a really good player.

Below are the best RFAs available by position... which would you like to offer sheet and for how much?

Forwards:

- Evander Kane (Jets)

- Kris Versteeg (Panthers)

- Mason Raymond (Canucks)

- Sergei Kostitsyn (Predators)

- T.J. Oshie (Blues)

- Nikolai Kulemin (Maple Leafs)

- Sam Gagner (Oilers)

- Jakub Voracek (Flyers)

- Colin Wilson (Predators)

- Lars Eller (Canadiens)

- Ryan O'Reilly (Avalanche)

- Tyler Ennis (Sabres)

- Jamie Benn (Stars)

- Justin Abdelkader (Red Wings)

Defencemen:

- Shea Weber (Predators)

- Mike Green (Capitals)

- Kyle Quincey (Red Wings)

- Dimitry Kulikov (Panthers)

- Michael Del Zotto (Rangers)

- Mark Fistric (Stars)

- Jonathon Blum (Predators)

- P.K. Subban (Canadiens)

- John Carlson (Capitals)

- Cody Franson (Maple Leafs)

- Keaton Ellerby (Panthers)

- Kyle Cumisky (Ducks)

- Mark Fayne (Devils)

Goaltenders:

- Eddie Lack (Canucks)

- Anders Lindback (Lightning)

- Leland Irving (Flames)

- Ben Scrivens (Maple Leafs)

- Richard Backman (Stars)

Again, who would fit in well on the Canucks and for how much?

TJ Oshie would be the no-brainer for the Canucks needs.

Maybe 3 years 5M ?! Which the Blues would match in a hurry..

When you offer sheet somebody its a vicous cycle that will end up biting you in the ass...

Versteeg, Raymond, Kostitsyn, Oshie, Quincey, and others (I saw a list but it wasn't a complete one, and this is off the top of my head) are have all filed for arbitration, so they can't be offer-sheeted.

WEBER!!!!

I'd probably offer a 1 year contract to him (not enough for us to have to give up four 1st round picks though

None. Offer sheets make enemies. Gillis needs to make friends so he can get more trades done.

Shea Weber, 1 year 8.45 mill.

If Nashville doesn't match Shea is ours for at least the year and hopefully longer.

If Nashville matches he's a UFA next summer and we can sign him then.

Offer Sheet are for noobs.

A good player accepting an offer sheet needs to be massively overpaid or else it will be easily matched. If you overpay, you risk the chancee of losing several of top draft picks.

Lose/Lose.

Add the fact that you will piss off the other 29 teams.

+ Lose

Lose/Lose/Lose situation.

Only time to make an offer sheet is when there is an unproven NHL player that isn't projected to be very good. Then at least you have a chance, without having to sacrifice too much picks. Player will still be overpaid, as expected.

Poile will not match a 1 year offersheet for Weber.

If he matches then he cannot trade Weber all year and he will walk in the summer.
