True, that Vanek offer was really out of nowhere, trying to remember the last time an offer sheet was giving that would be at the top end of compensation, probably have to go way back to the Gratton one (which the Flyers got saved by TB's stupidity of trading the picks back). Before that there was one for Federov I believe by Carolina. Those were both under a different compensation system as there is now. I am sure there were others but that is all I can think of.
I always wish the Kesler offer would have worked out. Imagine picking him up for the price of a 2nd rounder. Who knows if he would have developed into the same player he is today here, but putting him into our lineup (not that it could be done for cap reasons) would be nice.
