I'm all for offer-sheeting him. 1st+2nd+3rd, that's fine to give up for a player of Cowen's calibre. Of course, I don't believe we'd be giving it up, Ottawa would match. But it would sting them financially. Whether that would end up having an effect on their ability to compete this year or not, I don't know, but that would be the main objective.

Getting Cowen to sign an offersheet with our team is probably not viable, though, even if you throw $4M at him? (which would just be a 1st+3rd I think). But who knows. It would surely be worth a try IMHO.
