Umm... no. I think you'll find that there are plenty of players who have fulfilled their ELC's but haven't cracked the full time NHL roster yet, and end up signing the Q.O. put before them. I think you'll even find plenty of "role players" (players who crack the NHL on the 4th line, for example, and still find themselves patrolling said 4th line three years later. And without having investigated it further at this point, I still have to assume that more than a handful of those guys actually accept their Q.O. around the league each year.

edit: Just checked the FA board, and I think we even have an example today of someone signing their Q.O.: Teddy Peckman (known to everyone except Don Cherry as Theo Peckham) just re-signed with the Oilers for $1.075M, which I have to assume is his Q.O. (will have to double-check, though).
