The possibilities of the Canucks offer sheeting Benn or ROR

Obviously we would all love to have one of these players on our roster, now more than ever. What would you people think about offering a 1 or 2 year deal worth 6-7M AAV?

The problem I see is that with Weber for example he wanted to take advantage of a BDC. Now that it is no longer really possible to do those types of contracts short term offer sheets IMO are the way to go. Especially if Benn for example wanted to play for Vancouver he can make it clear that he wants to leave ala Kessel and a trade is facilitated. When they match (because they will match) they can quietly request a trade in the offseason. The only issue I could see would be that we have so many RFAs in the offseason revenge could easily be had (especially Dallas as the owners don't get along)

Anyways I had this idea while waiting for a client @ Tim Hortons and thought I'd float it out there.

Edit: On 1040 they had a guest on who was saying Benn desperately wants to play for the Canucks, I think ROR is much more realistic but Benn is preferable
