Sabres RFAs Receiving Qualifying Offers from the Team

Recommended Posts

Thanks Brawndo, any chance we can make the title specify that it's us extending our own RFA's, and not other teams trying to poach them?

This makes me happy.

I saw a scenario where he (and Larsson) didn’t get one and Z is a guy I still root for.

Girgs doesn't produce but he plays like a man.  The bottom of our lineup can't be all young players. If we can just put together enough skill around him - his line can take advantage of his willingness to work in the corners.

Why is the logo on his shirt digitally altered? He's already wearing a Jags shirt?

this is dumb, but thats the new jags logo, I bet his shirt has the old on in the original.

I sure hope he is working on his skills constantly this summer. Just to get 10-12 goals out of him a year would be really big

Thank God we're resigning Larsson and Gigensons and got rid of that bum O'Reilly.   Progress.

Jochen Hecht is still waiting for a team to call him, maybe he can crack our bottom six!

I am whelmed by this news. I do t think this team will ever be good with both of these two on the roster. They're infected with "tank stink" and need a change of scenery. Hopefully they're part of a package in a trade.

qualifying someone and them making the team are much different things.  Qualifying them makes them easier to trade.

Besides both did a great job killing penalties last season.  We could do worse then keeping them as the 12 & 13th forwards

I don't see how re-signing those two had any affect on O'Reilly's situation, or vice versa

Can we please give Ryan O ***** Reilly a rest or at least leave in the ROR thread.  I am sick of bitching about him.  It is spilled milk, get over it.

Am I wrong or right when I think that qualifying offers are a 10% increase from a players last years salary.

Not necessarily.  It is dependent on the previous salary.  The second bullet point here spells it out.

Yeah I couldn't remember either.  Sounds like basically you submit offer 99% of time, that gets ball rolling:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restricted_free_agent

NHL[edit]

A player who is no longer considered to be entry-level, but does not qualify as an unrestricted free agent, becomes a restricted free agent when his contract expires. A player may only declare himself to be an unrestricted free agent if he is over the age of 27 or has played in the league for a minimum of 7 years.

Qualifying offers[edit]

The current team must extend a "qualifying offer" to a restricted free agent to retain negotiating rights to that player. Qualifying offers are for one year contracts. The minimum salary for the qualifying offer depends on the player's prior year salary.

Players who earned less than $660,000 in the previous season must be offered 110 percent of last season's salary. Players making up to $1 million must be offered 105 percent. Players making over $1 million must be offered 100 percent.

  • If the qualifying offer is not made, the player becomes an unrestricted free agent.
  • If the player rejects a qualifying offer, he remains a restricted free agent.
  • If the player does not sign before December 1, he is ineligible to play in the NHL for the remainder of the season.

Possible outcomes[edit]

If a player accepts a qualifying offer, he then signs a one-year contract with his current team under the terms of the offer. If the player rejects the qualifying offer, or has not yet accepted it, he is able to negotiate offer sheets with other teams. Qualifying offers are required for a team to retain a player's rights, but in most cases the player and team will agree to a contract differing from the qualifying offer. Should the player sign an offer sheet with another team, his current team is notified and can no longer negotiate a new contract or trade the player rights to another team. The current team has 7 days to make a decision whether to match the offer sheet, or decline and receive draft pick compensation from the team making the offer sheet.

  • Accept The player remains with his current team on a contract identical to that of the offer sheet, with the exception that the current team does not have to match any clauses restricting their ability to trade or reassign the player like a "no trade clause". The team is not allowed to trade the player for one year.
  • Decline The player becomes a member of the team with whom he signed the offer sheet under all the terms of said offer sheet. His now former team claims draft picks from the player’s new team as compensation. Compensatory draft picks are determined by the player’s new salary on a sliding scale.

For example:

  • In 2008 a team that signed a restricted free agent to a salary averaging $2,615,625 to $3,923,437 per season lost a first-round draft pick and a third-round draft pick to the player’s former team.
  • Signing a restricted free agent to a contract worth over $6,539,062 per year costs a team four first-round draft picks.

At any point during the negotiation process, if the player has been in the NHL for longer than 4 years (less if the player signed his first contract after the age of 20), either the player or his current team may file for salary arbitration as a means of settling a contract dispute. At this point the player may no longer sign an offer sheet. The deadline to file for salary arbitration is July 5 with cases being heard between late July and early August.

  • Salary Arbitration. Both the player and his current team submit their expectations for the player's salary for the coming year. The team cannot request a reduction in salary of greater than 15%. The arbitrator hears the case from both player and team and renders a verdict. The verdict sets the salary the team is required to pay the player. After the arbitrator's verdict is rendered, the team must make a decision within 48 hours of the verdict being rendered. If the team accepts, the player is signed to a new contract at the salary set in the verdict. Should the team decline, the player then becomes an unrestricted free agent.

A team can take a player to arbitration once in his career. Players may request salary arbitration as often as they please.

I didn't say they were related.  However, both statements are true.
