Considering every team is on a budget, nope. With a salary cap in place, offer sheet revenge is a minor risk and a major nuisance for the team trying to get revenge.
Vancouver and STL exchanged offer sheets over Steve Bernier and David Backes. Don't think either of those were breaking the bank..
Do you think the Rangers would immediately offer-sheet a player to a contract that the other team couldn't match (and the player likely doesn't deserve) just to get revenge? Or do you think they'd more likely weigh the salary cap ramifications and how the player fits into their roster/system? I'm sure they'd love to be stuck with a player they don't necessarily want for way too much money just to stick it to a team..
