And, just because one team tried to poach a player doesn't mean that it will happen again.
How often are these Offer-sheets handed out?
More importantly, how often are they actually signed by the player?
and for the record, no precedent was set with the ROR signing. Guys who sign offer-sheets are basically given UFA type money to induce them to signing the actual off-sheet and to try to scare the team owning the players right from matching.
It's why Neil Smith front loaded Sakic's contract with a 14 million 1st season.
Generally agree, but I could easily see a $5m = three year offer sheet for Stepan.
Sather generally plays hardball with RFAs and eventually gets them to capitualte. I think $2.5 for Stepan is an absolute pipe dream though.
