I think it would have to come from a team that has a reasonable hope of drafting top-10, and it has to hit the threshold for 4 1st round picks as compensation.

Obviously, the Habs match anything on the $6.7M range that only gives 1st,2nd,3rd.

The $6.7-$8.4M range at 1st-1st-2nd-3rd is maybe dubious. But you don't take that compensation for 20th overall picks.

So I'm thinking it's the over $8.4M. So that's like a deal over $42M total. Although even then, if there is a 7 year limit on RFA deals and the offer sheet is out to that 7 years, that's actually a lower cap hit than the compensation table value, so the Habs may still match.

Basically, I don't think there is any chance of an offer sheet working here. It would have to be a trade.
