Yeah, I don't really understand that comment. Burke may have used the possibility of an offer sheet as leverage, but he still gave Chiarelli a better deal than he would have got from an offer sheet. And it might not have even been a Toronto offer sheet; Nashville was willing to give up more than Toronto for Kessel, they just couldn't match signing bonuses. Not to mention quite a few other teams who probably were at the gates considering the Bruins situation.
