Also I would never offer sheet Shattenkirk. If we offer sheet him at 6 million per year we are giving 4 first rounders up for him. He isn't worth that. Pietrangelo is a much better target, because his salary is expected to be north of 6-6.5 million. I see him signing in the 7 range, maybe slightly more with the new restrictions.
I would love to get Pietrangelo, I just really do not see it happening. I would offersheet him but I think they match. I would even go as high as 8.5 per. That is a lot but to finally get a #1 guy I would do it. Much easier to find those 2-5 guys.
