 Four  1st round picks for Nylander.  I would take that in a heart beat.

That's not quite the entire picture. They would take the total value of the contract over the term, or 5 years whichever is smaller.

Example if a team offered Nylander 7 years x $8M (presumably something Nylander would take) that is total value of $56M, however they would divide that number by 5 to determine compensation.

$56M/5 = 11.2 and would mean the team gives up 4 first round picks.

Holy crap. Did not know that.  Thanks Zee.
I just learned this recently too. So if his agent insisted on a 7 year deal from another team (in the imagination land where offer sheets actually happened) it would have to be 7.2 for 7 years to stay less than 4 first round picks. The Leafs would match that though as 7.2M is workable in the cap.

Wouldn't the Leafs have to get draft pick compensation if Nylander signs somewhere else?  That could be the deterrent for other teams right there.

$1,339,575 or less              No compensation
$1,339,576 to $2,029,659      Third-round pick
$2,029,660 to $4,059,322      Second-round pick
$4,059,323 to $6,088,980      First and third-round picks
$6,088,981 to $8,118,641      First, second and third-round picks
$8,118,642 to $10,148,302   Two firsts, a second and third-round picks
Over $10,148,302              Four first-round picks

Yeah, I've wondered about this too.
If I were an agent looking to get the best deal for my player, I'd do this.
If I were another team looking to make a rival club sweat, I'd do this.
Probably comes down to way GMs collude to keep salaries low.

Because compensation is too low. In order for an offer sheet to have any real chance of succeeding they basically have to make the compensation more valuable than the player they're signing.

That's more or less impossible to do. Look around the league and find a young player who you'd sign to a deal between 6-8 million who isn't worth more than a 1st, 2nd or 3rd. Or between 8-10 million who isn't worth more than two 1sts and a 3rd. The real effect of offer sheets being common is that few players would actually change teams but the price of RFAs would go up for everyone.

Effectively, saying you'd do it as a GM is either saying you'd drive up the price of your own RFAs for no real benefit or it's saying you'd be out there signing RFAs to salaries they can't justify to put pressure on other teams. Regardless, you probably wouldn't be GMing for long.

Why don't RFA's use offer sheets? I'm sure the agent could get it out there that his client would be willing to sign an offer sheet with another team if one is presented. If someone offers $8M Nylander gets what he wanted even if the Leafs match.

Although the "we can and we will" got allot of play, Dubas also said something to the effect of it'll take time and may not happen as quickly as fans would like.
