The compensation is based on the offer sheet, not his contract from the previous season. If he signed an offer she below the +$7.8 million so it didn't cost the team 4 picks. Nashville would simply match the offer. In fact even if it was higher depending on the amount they still might match it and simply trade him for something other than picks.
