No surprise that all 7 RFAs received QOs. As has been discussed here, the questions are which players file for arb. (of those eligible), which sign multi-year deals and which sign QOs, etc.

I know Langway and others have replied to your series of posts on this comment, but I didn't see this particular aspect specifically replied to when reading the discussion. It is not true that he's lose his RFA status, even if he signed afterward.

An RFA who does not receive a QO and becomes UFA does not automatically retain UFA status for his following contracts. He has to meet the UFA requirements at the end of the next contract otherwise the player is RFA and the team has a right to QO him, based on the current CBA.
