They should jsut get him locked up rather than dealing with the awkwardness of dealing with an offersheet, and decdiding whether or not to match and all that.
Because they're trying to lock him up to something not that expensive.

A Crosby like deal would be 10-10.5M a year for 5 years. Tampa doesn't want to go that high without adding significantly more years on the end of the deal.
