Rumblings: Offer sheet for Dougie Hamilton?

I’m sure the Boston Bruins would match no matter what, but it’s interesting to hear rumblings of teams contemplating the idea of an offer sheet for restricted free agent Dougie Hamilton.

We haven’t seen a whole lot of offer sheets the past few years, but the idea here is that the Bruins are right up against the cap and are vulnerable to it.

It’s believed that Edmonton Oilers general manager (and former Bruins GM) Peter Chiarelli is in fact tossing around the idea internally. How much fun would that be? But seriously, the Oilers are in need of help on the blue line so it would make sense. Thing is, I doubt they’re the only team thinking of doing it.
