    What sort of cap hit and term would he get if he goes to arbitration?

    Probably between 5-6 million. Most cases are player elected arbitration, if it is then Ottawa can decide on a one year or two year deal. If it is club elected arbitration, Stone will chose 1 year. Would be awful if it is settled through arbitration. Arbitration would be a huge lose for the Senators.

    According to Bruce .. Stone wants to be here long term. We have to think the Sens want him here long term.. They will work something out. I think he gets 7 mil for 8 years ... If he'd go for this the Sens would be nuts not to.

    This is going to be a painful one to watch.

    He'll file for arbitration which is part of the process, perfectly normal and it will go the wire, again, perfectly normal.

    But I can see more mass hysteria as we wait. "Melnyk is too cheap" " he doesn't want to stay" etc....

    If Karlsson goes, Melnyk doesn’t deserve the benefit of the doubt.

    Stone plays hard, produces and has a fantastic attitude. He will be the new cornerstone of the franchise.

    Everybody is a Melnyk / Sens Finance expert now...
    Offer sheet him there is no way the Sens match that blah blah...

    If Joe Sakic offer sheets Stone after Dorion became his BFF by giving him a third to take Hammond and save a little cash, but allowing Hammond to remain in Belleville and play in front of Sens prospects .. I'll be annoyed

    Considering the Avs can't use any of the pieces from the Duchene deal in an offer sheet, I wouldn't worry too much

    In the scenario, they would be giving us their 1st,2nd, and 3rd while keeping the 1st and 3rd they have received from us.

    The first they get to keep would be from a Sens team without Stone and probably Karlsson.

    I swear people are so stupid with the Offer sheets. It's like every player wants to just sign an offer sheet with another team and throw away the team that drafted them, gave them a chance to be NHL players and etc.

    There's a reason these things never happen, not many players are actually willing to do that. For the well being of the franchise, players usually just get traded if they can't reach a contract agreement or if they feel like a contract won't get done (Johansen for example).

    A player signing an offer sheet is a complete disrespect of his team and teammates. Mark Stone would never ever do that and anybody who has half a brain knows that.

    These offer sheet talk are pure stupidity and just a clickbait. Who's the last player to actually sign an offer sheet and go to another team? ****ing Dustin Penner 10 years ago.


    And this dumbass is here wondering if Stone would sign an offer sheet...

    Bro I swear we see this offer sheet talk come and go every year without a single thing happening on that front. Of course some blogger will look at Ottawa and Melnyk and say that they are a prime candidate for an offer sheet with Stone to re-sign but the reality is that the only person who can sign that offer sheet is the player and that does not happen in 2018.

    I do agree it not a likely scenario. If it did happen, there's no way we don't match.

    It's just interesting given Colorado has our 1st and 3rd next year. It's not the usual random offer sheet.

    True but I mean look at it this way, Stone has said in no uncertain terms that he wants to be here, he loves it here, and that's unequivocal. He said even if we rebuild he wants to be part of the solution.

    So in order for any of this nonsense to even happen, he'd have to suddenly change his mind and go against every single public thing he's said regarding the situation so far. Then, the offer sheet would have to be so high that Dorion wouldn't match and that Stone thinks it's worthwhile for him financially (keeping in mind that Ottawa is the only team that can offer an 8th year). But it can't be high enough that the other team is giving up 4 first rounders because what team is gonna do that.

    And even if you say he signs one because he wants out. He would have to be 100% sure Ottawa doesn't match. Because if they do, then he's actually stuck here long term. So in reality, if he really wanted out, he would simply ask for a trade and sign a deal with his new team. This offer sheet BS is so unlikely it's not even worth considering.
