I wouldn't offer sheet Subban. I am not opposed to offer sheeting, but to get to where Montreal wouldn't match, we'd need to give up 4 first rounders. I'm not sure Subban is worth that kind of money, nor do I want to gamble on losing a lottery pick and three more picks for Subban. God forbid, if the Oilers end up in the lottery again, it could mean Seth Jones, and I'd take him over Subban straight up long term. The only guy I would have been okay with the Oilers offer sheeting would have been Weber, as he is already a proven Norris nominee and arguably the best defenseman in the world.
