Even if you bump up each of those numbers by $0.5M that's still $4M for 4 roster spots. Yea, they may be forced to let go of a guy like Leopold or McDonald if someone offer sheets but they're really not in that tight of a cap situation. An offer sheet might force them to move a player they'd otherwise keep - Cole, McDonald, Leopold, Jackman - but I can't see them not matching anything unless it's just ridiculous
Those are some big time home town discounts you're suggesting. God bless their GM if they can make those deals.
