It's like being unemployed and sending resumes to a place that has only hired one person in the past decade, better than nothing - still a waste of time.
Scott Stevens?
Brendan Shanahan?

I'm not in favor of offer sheets unless it's the kind of situation Montreal was in before buying out Gomez - a ~$4.75m, 2+ year deal to Subban would not have been matchable due to their cap issues for next year. Obviously that's no longer an option.
