I don't see it. The whole RFA offer sheet thing doesn't sit well with many GMs. It seems that many of the older school GMs (Slats, Burke, Ferguson, Martin, JD, etc.) see the offer sheet as violating some gentleman's agreement. There was some scuttlebutt in one of the blogs yesterday the Gilles in Vancouver burned whatever bridges he had left with the offer sheet to Backes, and need we remind anyone about the verbal thrashing Lowe got across the board last year?

Add to that the Rangers are the nightmare retribution team. We have nearly unlimited resources, and don't particularly draft well, so if you sign one of ours to an offer sheet, you better believe Slats is coming back at you even harder. Maybe not this year, but probably next year.
