It's mutually assured destruction so let's not start something both sides will end up regretting.

I'd rather do it the way Brian Burke handled the Kessel situation, by hinting that an offer sheet might be on the way unless a trade can be worked out.
If DL targets BR, I certainly hope he doesn't hint about it. That would defeat the whole purpose.

If the Ducks knew Ryan was about to get an offer sheet, they would probably just cave in to Ryan's demands and sign him to a 3 year 15m contract before we could send him the OS.
