not a good idea, and just to mention, Sather's job isn't to throw away draft picks with offer sheets. This organization may finally have turned a corner by doing exactly the opposite of what you're suggesting, by drafting and developing their own players, and I hope they stick to that, lest they fall back into their old ways.
Their old ways were signing guys in their swan song year and giving up those picks.

A player like Kostitsyn is only 23 years old, and a dynamic player.

While i may have been confused on the compensation issue, i never make suggestions that are of "old Rangers" philosophy.

There is a big difference between advocating bringing in a young player that hasn't even hit his prime years yet, and a guy like lets say... Rolston or Shanahan...
