Here is the short version.

When a player is an RFA, in order for the team to retain his rights(prevent him from becoming a UFA) he needs to be given an offer that's at least 10% higher than his last year's salary. After that he basically a normal free agent, except for the fact that if he belongs to team A and team B offers him a contract of 3 million/year and he accepts, team A has the option to match it and sign him for that amount. if they choose to let him go, they will get compensation picks from team B.
