Basically player A gets offered 3.5 million a year and player B gets offered 2.5 million a year so said offering team would only be using a 1st and 3rd for Player A and a 2nd for player B.
This won't happen because their are so many factors that just make it a hard thing to accomplish.
A, you have to get the RFA's to agree to a contract. That, unto itself is a hard thing to do. A player has to go where he wants and get how much he wants. Same as free agency just you have to give to get. B, if the other team doesn't want either, you get both. Thats a lot for two lesser players (if they have real talent and agree to a 3.5 million dollar deal, you better believe said team matches it). Anywhere from 4.5 million to 7.5 million plus a 1st a 2nd and a 3rd. Thats alot, and as the Kessel deal proves, people like to see first rounders as be all, end all ways to win. Plus, option C, you tend to piss off other GM's.
It just doesn't make a alot of sense to double offer.]]>
