There are some teams I think wouldn't really care about perception, Philly, Boston and NYR all come to mind. if they think it will put them over the top why not make a move, especially if the Habs do match, he will get a lot of heat for letting it get this far as opposed to just giving PK a better offer all along.
I agree its doubtful, but Meehan has pull to, I don't think they have looked at trying to acquire offer sheets yet but I wouldn't say there is no chance. I've said it before somewhere here, people always forget the Free Agent part of RFA.
Habs would match and either keep Subban or trade him once CBA requirements/delays are met. One way or another, the offering club gains nothing, they force the Habs to pay more for Subban, they can expect the same treatment when they sign an RFA, and there's still some stigma associated with offer sheets that might hinder deals in the future. Deep pockets of the Habs can cause another franchise more trouble than cash-strapped Nashville.
