IF you could convince Sherman not to match the offersheet at $6.6M (keeping in mind they have more cap space than Buffalo, and keep in mind that in 3yrs. r less Grigs, Girgs, Armia, McNabb, Lieuwen, Makarov, Catenacci/Sundher all going to be looking for new deals - would be nice to not be strapped with another long-term deal at $6M+ (think Vanek...), not to mention sacrificing 2 1st RND picks, a 2nd and a 3rd in the process.

I dont mind 2 yrs of Stastny in a 'wait and see' sort of setting regarding an extension... we are after all in "win-now" mode.
