Any thoughts on offersheeting Rask @ around 6M? Compensation would "only" be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in 2014. Boston is projected to have only ~7.5M in cap space and they need to fill a forward spot (replacing Horton), a defensive spot (replacing Ference), and both starting and backup goalie, so it could put them into a bit of difficulty.
If that doesn't float anyone's boat, you could potentially do a similar thing with the Rangers' precious and infinitely valuable Ryan McDonaugh. They're only going to have ~11M to resign McD, Stepan, and Hagelin. Plus they need another depth D and another depth forward. If you sheet McD for 6M, there's no way the Rangers are getting all of those other moves done w/ only ~5M. At best, you'd get McD for a couple future picks. At worst, you'd put the Rangers into some serious financial trouble and potentially force them to break-up Gaborik-Richards-Nash.
Either way that last one is a win-win IMO.
