He would have offer sheeted Kessel and even got the pick he needed back to offer sheet but that was just used as a threat if he wasn't traded.

When Penner was offer sheeted he did nothing to deserve the money he did and the Oilers never talked about discussing any trade. They just came out of no where and offer sheeted him.

Oilers were desperate..No one wanted to go there unless they were overpaid (Vanek offer sheet, Penner offer sheet, attempt to get Heatley to come etc).

Holmgren on the other hand had tried to trade for Weber but when he realized Schenn/Couturier etc have to be in a deal, he just said **** that and offer sheeted Weber..

Poile knew it was coming if he didn't lock Weber up.
