Then next year either Clutterbuck or Simmonds at ~$3.5m (or whatever a 2nd round pick gets you), all the Wild and Flyers role players at ~$1.5m. Go big at the max salary you can get without giving up multiple 1sts on Seguin, Hall, Lucic, Pietrangelo, Bogosian, OEL..

With all that cap space and an extra first round pick every year he might be able to snag enough talent to stay competitive, make life difficult for the Wild and Flyers and make enough of a mess that perhaps the offer sheet falls by the wayside. Hell by the time his four years of Flyers picks are up everyone in the league would be terrified to offer sheet one of his players.
the limit on this strategy is that you need to use your own team's picks for the compensation. it's a good use of team picks if poile lets weber walk because he'll have lots of other picks but i would bet that nashville picks would be a lot higher than flyer picks and you're giving them to the flyers.

so in short, use offer sheets selectively and wisely if you're going to go that route.
