And then, as i understood it, when that RFA deal is done, the player, regardless of age, becomes a UFA. Thus, if Staal signs only a 2yr deal, at the end of that deal he isn't a RFA, but a UFA, no?
No, it's age 27 or 7 years of NHL service

I think there's also some special circumstances where if a player doesn't play X amount of games he can become an UFA as well, but that doesn't apply to Staal
