Because Johnson missed a year of service with a knee injury in 2008-09, however, he is not eligible to receive offer sheets from other teams; Perron is eligible.
Saw it on the Business board. I was unaware of this rule until KDB brought up the CBA language.

It is definitely a good thing for the Blues as far as the negotiations go.

Quote:
(c) Players With Fewer Than Three Years of Professional Experience.
Any Player with fewer than the required years of professional experience
set forth in Section 10.2 shall have no right to Free Agency except as provided in this
section. Upon expiration of such a Player's SPC, the Club to whom the Player was last
under SPC shall be entitled to make that Player a Qualifying Offer under the terms and
conditions set forth in Section 10.2(a)(ii) above. A Club which makes this Qualifying
Offer will have the exclusive right to negotiate with any such Player. In the event no
such Qualifying Offer is made, the Player shall immediately become an Unrestricted Free
Agent pursuant to Section 10.2(a)(iv) above.

Very interesting. All the Blues have to do to keep his rights is give EJ a qualifying offer, which will only have to be slightly more than the $850k he made this past season. They'll obviously offer him more than that but it sounds like he has very little negotiating leverage as he doesn't even have the option of signing an offer sheet. EJ's not eligible to file for arbitration either.

I saw JR's article too and was going to look up the CBA section he was referring to so thanks for posting it.

I would really like a 5year 20mil contract, his 10goals and 39points earn it now and he should only improve.
