If you're going to make an offer sheet you want it so the other team can't/won't match it. This was so reasonable it was a no-brainer it would be matched. What was the point? To piss GM's off? Or is Gillis desperate?
I dunno, if you were looking for a guy that can play the RW and get about 20 goals while playing a physical game, why not try for Tucker, instead of making an offer to an RFA that was going to be matched? Maybe Gillis did try for Tucker, I dunno...this whole thing just has me baffled. Am I missing something?
