Carolina waited patiently to get their payback for Montreal's offer sheet to Aho.

Compensation would be a 1st and 3rd, but if Montreal matches, he'll need to be qualified at that amount next year.

Everything about this Kotkaniemi thing is hilarious.

This is awesome.
But does it make sense for Carolina?

$6M?
Dylan Larkin makes $6M
Larkin 44 games 9-14-23
KK - 56 games 5-15-20
In a lot fewer minutes.
And he is getting closer to 50 percent on faceoffs. And he has some nice playoff numbers.
I like the way he plays.

But $6M for 20 points in 56 games.
If Montreal balks, Carolina owes a first and third.
And Carolina isn't such a lock for the playoffs.

Waddell is a moron. Kotkaniemi had a good rookie year but has regressed since. He’s looking a lot like Riley Sheahan career wise. Not worth the $ and not worth the qualifying raise next year. Meanwhile he moved Ned over 500k and got fleeced on Jake Bean.

Carolina probably picks at least 15th or later. That’s what makes this a tough call for the Habs. Given this year’s draft class. i’d take my chances on the Canes pick in the lottery on this one though. If Montreal is a playoff team they can use the Canes pick to get Nick Leddy at the deadline.

Supposedly Carolina tried trading for Kotkaniemi this offseason before the offer sheet.

I was disappointed when it became clear he wasn’t going to sign with us. I also thought it was a mistake on his part, because I thought his path to the NHL would have been easier in DET than elsewhere. But I’m much happier with our current situation of Ned and Cossa, than I think I would have been if he did sign with us and either Ned or Cossa didn’t happen as a result. Best of luck to him!

Probably not, but if the Canes are a playoff team and it looks like their pick will be say 22 or later, Leddy & a 3rd or something like that could work. Leddy for a first & a salary dump could too.
