There is actually, unless I'm mistaken.
But if you sign a player to an offer sheet, the total amount of the contract will always be divided by the first five years only. Sign PK to a 50M 7y contract, that's a 10M cap hit. That's huge.
Also, there's no more front loaded contracts. So that makes it tougher.
In the end, any GM offering an offersheet would have to offer something reasonable, and so, the possibility of Bergevin matching it increases. There's no point in offering an offersheet that you think will be matched.
Under the old CBA, I'm pretty sure he would have gotten offers by now.
