In regards to the offer sheets themselves he was upset at inflating contracts. Funny enough, now players have inflated 2nd deals after coming out of ELCs. He acted like a major baby about it, but he wasn't wrong.
I never heard that story. But regardless, he said many times that he didn't like them and would never offer one himself.
Let's face it, the man is a hockey dinosaur, one geological epoch ahead of Don Cherry.
But he is a character, and has character and I find myself liking him as a man. Just not so much as a GM.
