Qualifying Offers

According to John Glennon:

"The Preds have made qualifying offers to seven of their eight potential restricted free agents -- Ryan Jones, Ryan Maki, Cal O'Reilly, Antti Pihlstrom, Kelsey Wilson, Matt Ellison and Denis Platonov."

Ellison and Platonov have both been playing in Russia. Does anyone know why they would need qualifying offers? I thought their contracts would be "frozen" if they were playing in Russia.

I assume this is strictly a procedural move just in case the players come back and sign with some other NHL team...but does anyone know for sure?

Thanks!
