Carolina Hurricanes Tweet Awesome Response to Montreal Canadiens Sebastian Aho Offer Sheet

Carolina Hurricanes forward Sebastian Aho is coming off an impressive season, and now the restricted free agent has signed a five-year, $42.27 million offer sheet from the Montreal Canadiens that contains the maximum amount of signing bonus that's allowed.

At 21 years old, Aho played in 82 games and compiled a career-best 83 points, including 30 goals. He continued that good play in the postseason, as he added five goals and 12 points over 15 games.

The Hurricanes have a week to match the offer, and if they don't, the Canadiens will send a first, second and third-round draft pick to Carolina. However, given the Canes' confident response on twitter, we can assume he's staying put despite the money involved.

It's a reasonable deal for the Hurricanes to match, especially since Aho is a rapidly improving talent on Carolina's top line. However, Aho will get $21 million in the first 12 months of the deal, making it a costly decision in the present for the Canes.
