Not really. RFA's still retain their value, especially when they aren't expected to make very much. I would be surprised if Bernier made much more than $2 million. It also gives the club the opportunity to sign a contract friendly to their own needs. Having to sign a player isn't much of a problem, especially so much so that it devalues him. Can't think of any RFA that has been devalued by not being signed when there is no threat of them leaving the NHL. Just not a problem whatsoever.
