People always poo poo the notion--citing how few offer sheets have been extended since the lockout, and how almost 100% of the time the home team matched.

Well here we are. Offer sheet signed. Match.......uncertain.
Offer sheets are extremely rare. This is even moreso with the unprecedented structure. NO offer to date in the league has been so front loaded, so bonus laden, so unable to insure.

Look back at the structure of EVERY contract prior to this summer and we're probably able to match easily. Look at EVERY offer sheet up until this one and matching is easy based on the stable payment structure.
