NOTE: It must be a one-way qualifying offer if a) the player appeared in 180 or more NHL games in three previous seasons; b) the player appeared in 60 or more NHL games the previous season; and c) the player did not clear waivers during the previous season. Backup goaltender appearances count as games.
CBA REFERENCE: Section 10.2 a (P. 30-31)
This does not say this was the offer , only that it is the MINIMUM QO which is well understood. My point is without knowing the offer itself how could anyone bet someone would reject it . A qualifying offer could be a much larger number than the minimum shown here .
