I highly doubt they'd go the OS route with Kadri but I certainly think it would be a "bold" move. Leafs would definitely still match though.
I think when a new GM is trying to open trading relationships with other GMs, an offer sheet would be counterproductive. I have a feeling that the reason why Lowe stepped down as GM was that he was pretty well shunned after the Penner offersheet.

But then again, you see Holmgren and other guys still make trades after offer sheets.

I don't predict the Oilers signing offer sheets to anyone though. I don't think MacT believes in that, per say.
