If your trying to make sure Boston doesn't match you'd have to offer somewhere in the neighbourhood of 5.5 million per year and up but that would lead to a higher compensation. i.e. 2 1st rounders plus a 2nd and a 3rd or 4 1st round picks.
heck, if i'm the leafs or habs, i'm perfectly happy offering 5.2's to both of them and watching boston match. It changes nothing for them and makes boston unload SOMEONE, making them (hopefully) a worse team.
