The circumstances of the offer are fascinating. There have rarely been many offer sheets given out, but I believe this has to the be the first offer sheet that is of the front loaded cap circumventing nature. And considering the RFA is from a smaller market team that is known to be a bit cash strapped and is being offered by a big market team that is basically offering so large that it likely prohibits them from matching, I have to believe this is a exactly the scenario the NHL wants to get rid of.

It'll be interesting to see if the NHL approves the offer.
