    Get ready for the free agent frenzy

    Seems a little bit of a spoiler-fest on social media tonight with many outlets reporting X going to Y already. Either way, get ready for a lot of signings and way too many millions of dollars being paid to guys who had above-average seasons in their contract years!

    and as I told @Pheebs888 on Facebook - enjoy that extra cap space and 2nd rounder needed to trade for Kyle Turris after Duchene signs in Smashville

    Just read about Anders Lee looking for 9mil/year... which is the most absurd thing I've ever heard.

    So the Canadiens sent an offer sheet to Sebastien Aho and he signed it. Unfortunately, I think the Hurricanes will match this one quickly.

    I don't think this was a serious attempt to get Aho if I'm being honest. Montreal could have done better. If this is what offer sheets will be, what's the point of offering one?

    @scottkoz20 Lazar is a good kid. I hope he can put it together in Buffalo because he’s getting close to the last stop otherwise.

    I was with you on this until I saw Brandon Tanev get a six-year deal from the Penguins today.

    Look closer at the numbers, this isnt a simple 8.5X5 offer

    I studied this closely. I still don't consider it a serious offer. This deal is mostly a signing bonus contract. That's a dumb way to do it. The Leafs did that with Tavares and it is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

    The Hurricanes aren't even close to the cap limit and owner Tom Dundon has money to burn. I know he's a bit of a cheapskate but I don't think he is stupid enough to let Aho go over a signing bonus laden deal

    @scottkoz20 Lazar is a good kid. I hope he can put it together in Buffalo because he’s getting close to the last stop otherwise.

    I might be in the minority on this one, but this is a low risk, high reward signing. Kudos to Botterill on this and making sure that he found some organizational depth while making Rochester (and by proxy, Cincinnati - ECHL) better.

    I studied this closely. I still don't consider it a serious offer. This deal is mostly a signing bonus contract. That's a dumb way to do it. The Leafs did that with Tavares and it is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

    IMO, thats the point of the structure of that Offer sheet is to force Dundon, who has shown to be using your term here a "cheapskate", to see if he's willing to fork out nearly 1/2 of the money in the first 12 months of the deal. The fact that Aho signed it could also infuriate Dundon as well. Kudos to Montreal for stepping outside the box on this regardless of the result.

    However, I am more interested to see the implications on how this potentially impacts Point, Marner and a lesser extent Laine.

    Most agents are looking to get the signing bonus money for their clients as this would have to be paid regardless of another lockout.
