No one pays top money for defensive defensemen, so no offer sheet would be so much that we wouldn't match it. All it would do is annoy our franchise and not let us potentially get him on the cheap. There's still a real stigma on offer sheets and it's not really in a teams interest to annoy another team in this way because it could hurt dealings down the line.

Here are some quick points:
-Since the new CBA there have been no offer sheets to defensemen. -Only five offer sheets in total under it.
-Only one player has changed teams due to an offer sheet.

So do we really think Staal is attracting an offer sheet?
