Then repeat with Kessel. If I was Columbus or the Kings, I'd consider it... especially if either team could sign JayBo so that they would pick bottom-10 next season.
Any fans pitching a tent over the scenario of offering both Krejci and Kessel crappy Offer Sheets are so dilusional it's not even funny. A few points. Why would either guy settle for a lousy Offer Sheet? They can get a lousy contract from from Boston and play on a team that is probably entering next year as a top 5 team in the NHL.
Second, Boston may walk away if someone throws big money at either guy and they sign that sheet, thus garnering something like 4 1st rounders back. But why would Boston allow either guy to leave for a crappy compensation package (1st, 2nd, 3rd) when they could just match and trade him instead? All this talk about Boston being so screwed that they'll just let their players walk for next to nothing is beyond absurd. Is there anyone out there that really believes that Boston couldn't get more than a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd if they decided to shop either guy around the league?
