I understand that, I was just saying that a QO was that so coming up with a figure could be done... I now see where not making an offer at that point means that they are FAs until a contract is signed.

That said, most cases RFAs are retained, and especially when they are on the NHL roster the season before reaching that status. But that gives the teams some wiggle room for tagging and decision making... Powe was not signed until late, and actually after Betts was looking like a no go to start the season and Lappy was out indefinitely. That is an example of the RFA situation.
