The rest of his case can be read here:

Personally, I am not a huge fan of the offer sheet method, however Howard took an interesting approach, that has names jumping out at me like crazy... Patric Hornqvist, Erik Johnson, Bergfors, Niskanen, Little and Hanzal to name a few. Is this likely? Hell if I know. But maybe, just maybe, Dean is already tinkering with this idea.

Here is a list of notable RFAs yet to be signed (and UFAs too, but those names suck!)

Look at it this way, one Dirty Harry reference, does not a GM make. If Dean always did exactly as he said, then DIEHARD would have trouble coming up with a nickname for Lombardi.

Is it worth the money, picks and risk? Depends. The part that intrigues me the most about Howard's article, is that his approach is a financial one, and not purely the typical internet "omg Bobby Ryan is a great player so lets offer sheet him!"

Take a read, enjoy, and most importantly, weigh in!
