The History of NHL Offer Sheets
http://lastwordonsports.com/2012/07/...-offer-sheets/

A very good read about the history of offer sheets dating back from 1986. There was a story about the Sharks using a cleverly structured offer sheet on Craig Simpson back in 1993.

Quote:
The Sharks would follow that up with an offer to Craig Simpson of the Edmonton Oilers for 3 years and $3.09 million. This was the first offer sheet to try a really creative salary structure as the Sharks put a ton of money into the deal as a signing bonus. The league invalidated the offer and stated that it was illegally structured, keeping Simpson an Oiler for a few more weeks. When the Sabres threatened to make a second offer sheet on Simpson, Edmonton traded the forward to Buffalo, rather than go through the situation again.
My favorite story out of there was how St. Louis landed Scott Stevens and then lost him due to their own greed.

Quote:
The Blues kicked things up a notch in 1990, by signing the first legitimate star player to an offer sheet. Scott Stevens was the cornerstone of the Washington Capitals defence and was emerging as one of the best defencemen in the NHL. He had already shown both an ability to be an offensive force with a 72 point season, and four years above 60 points in Washington. He was also developping a reputation as one of the most feared hitters in hockey. The Blues gave Stevens a 4 year, 5.1 million dollar offer sheet which the Capitals could not match, and 5 first round picks were awarded as compensation.

...

However St. Louis wasn’t done there, as they would make an offer sheet to the New Jersey Devils’ emerging power forward Brendan Shanahan, that same summer (1991). This would create a problem as the compensation for Shanahan should have been set at another 5 first round picks, and the Blues were out of picks due to the Stevens offer. The Blues offered Curtis Joseph, and Rod Brindamour along with a couple late round picks as compensation, but the Devils would not budge. Eventually the issue went before an arbitrator, who awarded Scott Stevens to the Devils, nullifying the Blues’ 1990 move.

NYR gets Nash

COLUMBUS gets Duster, Duster, Underacheiver, and late first.

Howson proves again why he is all world.

Hahaha, Howson continues to show why he's the scrubbiest GM in the league. Asking for Couture, Skinner and the whatnot only to take average assets from the New York Rangers.

I do love how Erixon got his way out of Calgary, only to end up in Columbus

Howson is obsessed with Russian talent.....Filatov. I at least predicted Del Zatto and Hagelin, clearly not even in the same ballpark.

Lol not to mention NYR gets a 3rd pick too.

Rangers basically did not give up anything.

SunGarrioch A scout on this trade: "It's almost offensive to think they asked San Jose for Logan Couture and then ended up with this.

PollakOnSharks: Wilson says Nash talks never went past demand for #sjshark Couture: "It was obviously non-starter several months ago and that never changed"

The earlier offer made by the Rangers during the season (as reported by Larry Brooks), had New York giving up:

Brandon Dubinsky, Tim Erixon, J.T. Miller (first round pick from '11), Christian Thomas, and '12 1st round pick.

Anyone have any idea what going on with the Ducks seemingly punishing their defense core by trading them for peanuts to the Islanders?

Of course apparently Visnamestolong might of had an ntc the Ducks forgot about.

Hmmm... I'd say he's flashy AND productive, personally. But cheers to Boiler for some recognition.

Because they think that the defence was actually good when they had nieds and pronger but cant understand why they all of a sudden blow chunks once those 2 left the team.

Massive reliance in the capabilities and abilities of their savior, Fowler. No pressure kid.

@TSNBobMcKenzie

NSH matches PHI offer sheet on Weber. Not surprised. Would've been OK to give up Weber in trade but NSH couldn't lose him for draft picks.

I guess Holmgren's thinking is that he'd rather Weber go to Philly or stay in Nashville. Nashville is gonna have a tough time competing now and aren't much of a threat for a cup anyways. If Weber was an UFA next year, he could have chosen NYR, Vancouver, Detroit, etc which could directly impact Philly's chance at a cup.


P.S Weber is an idiot. Next year might have been his only taste of UFA and now he's locked in for the rest of his career. He didn't even get a chance to get wined and dined and choose his destination.

...or he didn't care about which team and just wanted the contract that Nashville wouldn't give to him.
