David Backes and Steve Bernier were both signed to offer sheets that were immediately matched.

Everybody keeps expecting this wave of offer sheets to start flying... and it has yet to happen since the lockout. Like always, I'll bet we see no more than three or so a year. GMs understand that offer sheets sour relations with the other club, and can cause problems if they have a player that you want to pick up at the deadline. Besides, nobody wants to end up watching a temper tantrum thrown in the media by one of their counterparts because they were totally within their rights to do something to try and improve their club... again.
