It's how does the team pay $68million in bonus money between now and July 1st, 2017 (not even a five year span) on top of his paragraph one salary .... if they can actually pay that, what impact does it have on the rest of personnel options and team operations as a whole ... is it worth the risk to sign him for so much money that they can't recoup through insurance ... all $$$$$$$$ decisions.
If Poile had been authorized to make a deal with a similar structure, this is an automatic match situation. The fact that the team needs to go through such consideration to accept or reject the offer sheet indicates to me that Poile wasn't given permission for a deal of this structure.
Someone's been saying all along..THE MONEY IS THERE, THE MONEY IS THERE, THE MONEY IS THERE.
