He was qualified

This is from the Hawks website
Why not just pick up players like Datsyuk and Svatos? Because they aren't available to be picked up. Datsyuk is 26 and one of the rising stars in the league. The Red Wings qualified him, making him a restricted free agent, and expect to re-sign him soon.
