just to note from what i've heard the 7 year rule will NOT apply immediately and won't go into effect till 2007-08 when the ufa age drops to 27. so thornton and lecavalier will NOT become ufas after 7 years, they will have to wait till they are 27 or 28...the kovalchuks and nashs will be ufas at 25.

when the age drops to 27 it'll be 27 or 7 years...till then it'll still be based on age

that is most likely being done cause most guys make the nhl before they turn 24 so it would be stupid to have the ufa age set at 31 this year and use the 7 year rule
