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?
Backes, Bernier, Penner, Vanek and who am I missing?
