It was, by any standard you care to use, a remarkable day in the short history of the post-lockout NHL.

Unprecedented doesn't begin to do it justice. Unbelievable is more like it.

First there was the 15-year, $67.5 million contract between netminder Rick DiPietro and the New York Islanders, a deal that left other NHL general managers shaking their head in disbelief.

''Crazy,'' one NHL GM told TSN. ''Just (expletive deleted) crazy.''

But that was just a warm-up to the seismic activity of the afternoon, when the Philadelphia Flyers extended an offer sheet to restricted free agent centre Ryan Kesler of the Vancouver Canucks.
