Not a winning strategy
An offersheet actually allows Marc Bergevin to save face. He can match it on the basis that no one bullies the Habs and he had no choice given the value of the compensation (or there lack of). And he didn't come off his platform of the bridge contract given that he was given no choice.

With that said, no GM makes decisions out of fear of an offersheet.
