That's sort of my point of contention though, if he has an out why wouldn't that have been the "plan" all along instead of coming up with this other "plan" in the first place?

Why would they even consider letting it get to the point of an offer sheet allowing another team to set the terms of the deal which would also most likely makes it difficult for negotiations going forward on his next deal?

Not saying I know anything, for all I know the Rangers offered Stepan something reasonable on a longer term deal and he turned it down, but if the plan is something like, I have leverage so I'm just going to sit on it, it's a crappy plan.
