As Bob McKenzie stated, you can't sign a player to a offersheet and then leave his contract in no mans land, waivers becomes an automatic process as soon as the other team doesn't match.
Calgary would have filed a grievance if ROR had ended up on waivers, but they wouldn't have had a leg to stand on. I assume that the Flames are looking for a replacement GM, because Jay Feaster has got to get the sack sometime soon for making that kind of mistake. The fact he still think that signing another teams RFA to an offersheet puts him onto his teams RFA list at any point is mindblowing.
I'm confused on how signing an RFA to your team doesn't put him on your team's RFA list. Can you clarify?
