File for arbitration

Il i understand well, the RFA player can file for arbitration but if they do, they cannot receive sheet offer from another team. What happen to those player that do not go into arbitration like Halak for sample if they do not sign before the beginning of the season ? Is there some kind of date where if they are not signed, they become free agent ?

Jaroslav Halak does not have enough seniority to qualify for arbitration. He and others like him ARE free agents; the date has already passed, which was July 1st.

However, RESTRICTED free agents remain RESTRICTED no matter what they do. They can:

a) sign a contract with their current team
b) sign an offer sheet with another team, which will either be matched or not,
c) go to another league (usually in Europe)
d) stay home

Don't know what we could do about that market but how about we try to trade for some of those players. Maybe now that some teams could think they'll lose them to UFA next year, they would willing to hear the trade offers for guys like McClement, Laich, Goc or even Veilleux. I know that I would love more to see McClement, Goc or even Veilleux centering the 3rd line while I would put Chip on the 4th and see Lapierre battling for the spots on the wings instead.

Teams can also elect to take players to arbitration.... these will be announced today...

This can also be a stratgegy to avoid offersheets to your RFAs

What about Q-O's...does this take away the offer sheet possibility?

No.... without a Q-O an RFA becomes an UFA on July 1st, but making one doesn't prevent an offer sheet.

The Qualifying offer is necessary to keep the player an RFA
