Not sure if people have picked up on it, but these young, high end players, other teams actually want to keep them. You're not supposed to let great players walk away if you're trying to build a winning team. Especially defensemen.

The one guy who changed teams on an offer sheet, was grossly overpaid, because the Ducks didn't find it prudent to give Dustin Penner a big contract based on one year of production, which they were right to do since he's never topped 50 points more than once. Offer sheets are not for aggressive GMs, they're for desperate ones. And then both teams were still irrelevant after the fact.
What about the team's current situation, and history suggest to you that the GM will not be desperate, also considering the fact that he tried this very thing last offseason?
