Hurricanes ask funny one-sided poll question about Aho's offer sheet

Team proclaims it is set to match Canadiens deal with a little humor thrown in

The Carolina Hurricanes apparently aren't sweating Sebastian Aho's offer sheet.

The team took to Twitter to announce their intentions of retaining the 21-year old Finnish forward, a restricted free agent and their points leader from this past season.

Aho signed a five-year, $42.27 million offer from the Montreal Canadiens. Carolina has seven days to match and they have told the world they will, creatively.

Because this is the Hurricanes, the team that brought you the Storm Surge and the Bunch of Jerks, they made sure to put a little humor in their post.

The Hurricanes asked fans a poll question: "Will we match the offer sheet for Sebastian Aho?" Both answers were yes, but one choice said "Oui" the French word for yes, a nod to the bilingual city of Montreal.

Tweet from @NHLCanes: Will we match the offer sheet for Sebastian Aho?

What else would you expect from these Hurricanes?

No matter what it is safe to say, Aho will be in Carolina when they host Montreal in each team's regular-season opener on October 3.
