Ottawa Senators should worry about a Thomas Chabot offer-sheet

All the talk about restricted free agents and offer-sheets that prevailed going into the free agency period of the NHL schedule got me thinking about how all this might affect the Ottawa Senators and their star defenceman next off-season.

It seems every year come free agent time we hear about restricted free agents and the possibility for an offer-sheet, and it seems like every year that is all just talk and the restricted free agents re-sign with their respective teams and no one is the wiser. Well, this year was different. This July 1 we actually saw an offer-sheet presented by the Montreal Canadiens to Sebastian Aho of the Carolina Hurricanes.
