I wouldn't be surprised to see
, Colorado or
throw their hats in the ring too.
As a sidenote:
Just because the Bruins are willing to clear cap space to match these offer sheets, don't think that other teams aren't willing to clear cap space to throw out a bigger offer sheet.
Chicago doesn't have the room and they have two very talented forwards and two equally talented defensemen due for raises in the new future. It would be very short-sighted of them to sign one of Boston's RFAs.
St. Louis is in the same boat. They have a ton of young talent that I'm sure they want to hold on to over the next 2 to 4 years. Overpaying for one of Boston's RFAs would be very short sighted and could lead to them losing their own young players.
