• If RFA players like Matthews, Marner and Laine are not signed before july 1st, other team could certainly offer them contracts.
  • The last time an offer sheet was match was Ryan O’Reilly back in 2013.
  • Shea Weber received an offer sheet back in 2012 from the Philadelphia Flyers.
  • Most of the time, offer sheets are match, so there is no worry to lose the player.
  • But back in 2007, an offer sheet was made by the Edmonton Oilers on Dustin Penner which was accepted by the Anaheim Ducks.
  • As a result, Kevin Lowe had to trade away Edmonton’s first, second and third-round picks in the 2008 draft
  • At the time of the offer sheet, Penner was coming off of a 29-goal, 45-point regular season and three-goal, eight-point post-season in which the Ducks won the Stanley Cup. Extended a deal for five years and $21.5 million.
  • Penner signed with the Edmonton, but Anaheim had seven days in which to match the contract.
  • They did not and Penner was shipped to the Oilers in exchange for.
  • Making an offer sheets can be a natural disaster if it’s accepted.
  • Simply because one team will have to give up a tons of money and draft picks to get the player they want.
  • Worst case scenario for the Toronto Maple Leafs is that they will match any offer sheets made to their star players.
  • Now some GM might take advantage of that and make an offer sheets so high that teams would be paralyzed on the cap space after the match.
