How is it clear? Look at ROR. That caused a big stir, but it was all directed at first the Avs for not having ROR already locked up, and then at the Flames for the fact that they could have basically given away a 1st and a 3rd for nothing (since ROR would have had to go on waivers if they had got him). I don't see much disaster for ROR, especially after he started reciving his $5.5 million a year pay cheques.

No one attacks the player in those cases, and Holloway would likely make out like bandit, since most players who get offer sheeted get more than they are worth so the other team won't match the bid.

There's nothing to be dense about. If Holloway gets an offer sheet that he likes, he'd be smiling all the way to the bank, not ducking the PR machine.
