<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CaptainFlynnt</b></div><div>I'm trying to say Sergachev won't sign an offersheet of 5 years @ $6.34M, the AAV is too low.

Not only that, but the offersheet should make it hard for the other team to sign. 5 years at @ $6.34M gets matched by TB instantly. They will move somebody to match that contract because it will be a great value contract 3 to 5 years from now.

A 2 year deal @ $6.34M is a little harder to match because his contract will be up again two years from now, at which point he will want more money or could be offersheeted again. Tampa is probably expecting to get Sergachev at 2 years × $4M. $6.34M would make things a lot harder for them, but if you are giving them term with the offersheet than it's a no brainer they will match.</div></div>

Tampa ability to trade players or move out players is pretty difficult all the players that Tampa would like move have NTCs are TBH middle 6 forwards with 4/5 years left at 4/5 million - give 1 good reason any of those players will waive their NTC to not be in Tampa?

6.34 AAV is plenty for Sergachev and Tampa will have a very difficult time matching even with 1 compliance buyout - if the cap remains the same (likely) Tampa has about 6 million in space with 5 roster spots to fill plus Sergachev RFA Ciereli RFA and Cernak RFA. I get that in real dollars 4.6 in Tampa is the same take home as 6.34 in Montreal unfortunately if Sergachev signs an OS at 6.34 Tampa has to match that AAV. Plus there will be at least 6-8 teams that would give Sergachev that OS and a CBJ or Vegas or LA have pretty similar tax structures or Sergachev can keep his address in TB and still get the taxes back
