I thought in the NBA teams can spend over the salary cap and pay a luxury tax if they choose to do that. I know it's something the Knicks have done for a long time.

If there was no compensation in the NHL then Shea Weber would have left Nashville years ago.
NBA teams are allowed to exceed the salary cap to sign their own players, which helps a lot, which is why you see sign-and-trades in the NBA and not in the NHL.

Lin was a member of the Warriors and the Warriors wanted to get DeAndre Jordan from the Clippers and offered him 4/43 and he signed that. BUT, in order to clear room for Deandre, they had to get rid of Lin. The Clippers matched Golden State's offer so GS ended up with Nada. Jordan is a work in progress, ill bet the Clippers wish they would have just let GS have Jordan, he's not worth the money they're paying him. (but, DJ is Blake's best friend, so they didnt want to upset Blake, so they matched the GS offer is what i'm thinking)

It doesn't matter how "Canada covers the NHL." If the player, his agent, or one of the two GMs involved doesn't tell the media, no one knows. If an offer sheet goes unsigned, it does no one any good to let the media know, so outside of those 4 or so people, no one ever knows.

The reason offer sheets aren't more frequently successful is that they're self defeating. If you offer sheet a player, their controlling team has the opportunity to match. That means if you want to sign the player away, you need to offer more money than the controlling team is willing to match. On top of this, you also have to give up draft picks (which you'd need to have the right ones in the first place) to acquire the asset. Most of the time it just works out better to try make a trade with the team for slightly greater than the offer sheet compensation so you can sign the player at a more reasonable salary.

And the Asik offer sheet. And what they did on draft day. Crazy offseason for those guys.

I like the Bird year rule in the NBA though. Gives small market teams a chance to keep their own guys (even if that's now why it was initially instituted).
