That's not how offer sheets work. The compensation payment is determined solely by the CBA.
IF Flyers say no, then you have Steven Stamkos locked up for 12 years. If they say yes, you now have a lot of cap room and JVR, with 4 first round picks.
If the Lightning accept Stamkos on a deal constructed on another team's terms, they may find themselves heavily restrained this off-season (and down the line) or even be forced to trade off assets.
