Offer sheets are just jerk moves if you ask me. There are very few situations where they're applicable. Dustin Penner was one of them. The point of restricted free agency is to influence all youngsters into playing for the same team and helping build a franchise. Unless the team offer sheeting is offering much more than the player is worth and is giving up a hefty pick compensation (and the player is not an elite player), offer sheets will almost always be matched.

So in the end, most offer sheets are statements that claim "we know he's your property, but we are jealous so we will tell you what you have to pay for him'. I'm not a fan. I hope the new CBA helps avoid this kind of conflict.
