Galchenyuk will have no power to negotiate, just like PK didn't.
Not sure if the rules changed under the new CBA but if not then Galchenyuk won't be eligible for arbitration which means he has nothing to threaten management with.
All he can do is sit at home and play hard ball, which isn't really good for anybody.

The offer sheet is the only thing he has but that's not entirely in his power. He needs other teams to be interested and willing to give up whatever price it may be in order to sign him.
