10x5 would be the "fuck you" offer on the table, because while I think there's a good chance Canucks match it, it would put them in a bad position both instantly and 5 years down the line when he hits UFA
Ron Francis can kick off the rivalry himself
Ok who is gonna offer sheet Dickinson for 13 mil x 7 years?
Please do! Would gladly take the picks at that price.
Benning also said a signing announcement with Petey will be very likely made in a week on the 28th so it won't even come to this. And Hughes is inegible to be given an offer sheet
Quick. Someone offer sheet me in the comments
I can offer you an uncomfortably long hug and my love for 5 years
you know what to do, Bergevin.
With a better offer this time. Bergevin gift wrapped Aho for you guys. Not a chance Carolina wasn’t going to match that weak offer.
Can't wait for someone to take Loui at 8×8
Knowing Benning he’d match and realize what he’s done about a day later
What if the Kraken offersheets a ton of people and that was their hidden trap card all along?
Pettersson is really the only player worth an offersheet since Hughes is technically not eligible because he's designated as a 10.2(C).
Rather we offersheet Makar, but bring on the chaos
Nah. You don't want to do that.
It’s a shame GMs are too big of wimps to actually go all out bonkers on the offer sheets
it's their colleagues they'd fuck over. it makes sense they wouldn't want to ruin those relationships
Oh is that so?
-Big Balled Bergevin
Not another fairly valued offer sheet! What ever will they doooo
“I will fight you in a barn” - ~~Burke~~ Benning
- Marc Bergevin
Sounds like a challenge to me
If someone asked this is he supposed to say "hmm, it would be tough for us to match" but if he brought this up himself i understand the post.
he was asked this by the reporter, and after he also mentioned that a contract with Petey will very likely be announced in the upcoming week on the 28th
famous last words
Bergevin's biceps disagree.
I dont get why you would make this known. Just shut up about it and say you're not worried about offer sheets.
Exactly or say the opposite. We will take the compensation on any offer sheet lol.
Is that a challenge
This guy saw the Bergevin rumors. I doubt we do it but it would be funny
Bergy should try it. But then there's the risk that Suzuki gets offer sheeted next season 🤔
should do what mcdavid did, sign a whole year early to avoid that
Seattle should offer sheet Patterson if they really want to get the rivalry going
Why even say this
*Any* offer sheet? (looks intently at Petterson)
Oh man, someone please, make it spicy.
Yzerman: Fuckin bet, bitch.
I would like to take this moment to say we all know that offer sheets need to be signed by the players and we’re all talking with that knowledge because these proposals would be very funny, if unlikely.
Petterson is the only one who could be offer sheeted, and he'd still have to sign that offer sheet anyways, so I doubt we see that. The only team that could afford to do so would probably be Seattle. I'll admit that would be the instant drama that would kick off the rivalry, but no. No!
Is that Ludwig Van Bergevin's music ?!?
Can a contract be?
Both parties agree to make Elias Petterson an unrestricted free agent effective immediately.
Pettersson and Hughes probably hoping they get offersheeted. They probably want out! If the Canucks aren’t relocated first…
Can’t offer sheet Hughes
