Fair enough - that's your view.

I think you're taking DW a little too literally (if that's the right way to put it). Last summer, when Heater turned down the Oilers offer, it was reported (I believe) because the Sharks were interested but wanted to let the Sens pay the $4m bonus to Heater. DW didn't "tamper" directly but he certainly didn't stop any mutual friends/acquaintance from passing along the Sharks interest.

I agree - doubt it happens but moreso b/c if Nabby (or Patty) walks, I bet they will mull multiple offers come July 1st so DW wouldn't be in a position to arrange for a trade of their rights.
