As to the rest of your post, This offer probably screws more than 3 teams. It probably screws all teams that depend on good drafting and building plans. The ones who try to do it the right way, in a fiscally responsible manner and try to maintain success. It also really shortens windows of opportunity for winning.

actually who it really hurts are teams that spend a pile on older UFAs and try and get their young players signed cheap. Burke is pissed off cause he's going to lose a young player because he spent too much on UFAs and thought he'd be able to get Penner on the cheap. Not so anymore and now he's gotta worry about the same thing next year with Getzlaf and Perry.
