You are giving up UFA money to an RFA, no other reason for the player to sign the contract.
AND you run the risk of retalitory poaching. Not a smart way to conduct business.
If you are willing to trade the 1st, 2nd and 3rd (ROR Compensation) then make the offer to trade for that player.
Doubt you will see offer-sheets as often as you think.
Less massive. I thought the comp was 1st & 3rd (which, to me, isn't all that risky given the success rate of later first rounders vs. a proven commodity)? It might alienate certain GM's to other clubs, but it's certainly something that I, if I were a GM, would try to take advantage of.
I certainly don't think a club will "poach" the Flames for revenge, that would be stupid. If they send out an offer sheet to try to improve their club, it's within the rules.
