The teams have to put the offer sheets on the table to be signed in the first place. It's nice and all for the players to make salary demands, there's nothing that says any team needs to meet them.

How exactly is this the wrong thing to do? The owners know how much they're making, what their costs are and what they can afford. It's no different for me going into a job negotiation asking for a certain salary. I ask for as much as I think I can get, and if the prospective employer offers it to me, I expect it's because they know they can afford it. It's not up to me to know if they can or not...
