Compensation adjustment could lead to more offers for restricted NHL free agents

HF-Boards will go crazy on the proposals & FA signing ideas due to these changes.

http://aol.sportingnews.com/nhl/stor...ed-free-agents

“Find a team that is near the cap and you can really (mess) with them,” one NHL source said.


2011 restricted free agent compensation

An offer with a $1,034,249 annual cap hit or less: No compensation

More than $1,034,249 -- $1,567,043: Third-round pick

More than $1,567,043 -- $3,134,088: Second-round pick

More than $3,134,088 -- $4,701,131: First and third-round pick

More than $4,701,131 -- $6,268,175: First, second and third-round pick

More than $6,268,175 -- $7,835,219: Two first-round picks, a second and third

More than $7,835,219 and higher: Four first-round picks

You have a point..... I thought it was more drastic that this.... I didn't realize it until I saw the previous years. Thanks ChiChi

So how exactly is that going to lead to more offers? I'm not seeing much difference at all.

The compensation levels keep rising to the point that teams who don't match an offer sheet may be screwed but that's always been the case with offer sheets.

Kennedy is a good example of this. Pens management probably has his value pegged somewhere between $1.5-2M but if another team comes over the top and offers him $2.5M Shero might decline to match and all we're left with is a measly 2nd round pick for a 4 years of player development. The player either receives a bloated salary or the team is stick with a relatively meaningless pick.

Either way I doubt much changes, most GMs avoid offer sheets as a matter of principle.

I aim to please. Also, ChiChi? WTH did that come from? I've been called some interesting names in my day but ChiChi might take the cake for best off-the-wall name.

Name change may be in order. This Malkochalek thing seemed not to work. Although one could argue with all the injuries, that the way we finished and competed down the stretch was not dissapoint. I get da feeling... as a fan... dat player care for one another.

Hurry up and change your name, ChiChi.

I don't want to have to blame the Pens drafting an all-around defenseman in the first round but I will.

But what if Malkin and Michalek are my favorite offensive and defensive players? That makes my name catchy and clever.

I don't know... we may need some consensus on this. Peer pressure might be the only thing that breaks me.

Hey for the summer at least (until it becomes an impossibility), I could change it to "Laich ChiChi". A mythical place where Stanley Cup Legends are born.

TIOPS's last article triggered me to look at this.... in case anybody is wondering why I posted it initially... however, in hindsight (and thanks to ChiChi), it really shouldn't make an impact on Kennedy this summer.

Once again, thanks ChiChi

The reason you don't see offer sheets isn't because of some unwritten rule between GMs or some code of honor, the reason you don't see them is because it's the worst possible way to acquire talent. You not only have to overpay a RFA to be certain his team doesn't match, but you also have to give up draft picks.

Either overpay to sign an UFA or trade the picks to acquire the player, not both.

Yeah, the only way signing an RFA works is if you are in a position like Chicago was last season where they were forced to make decisions. Have to find teams that are smashed up against the ceiling.

I guess you could call the RFA issue a real pro challenge for Shero...

Yeah I dont think we have to worry about being offersheeted and like ChiChi said thats not much different than years past.

Id like to see the Rangers offersheeted this offseason while thier busy worrying about trying to sign Brad Richards. Callahan, Dubinsky, Anisimov and even Boyle.

Callahan, Dubinsky, and Boyle are all arbitration eligible, so like Parise, the chance for an offer sheet is essentially zero.

Pretty much. But this so called inwritten rule does exist. I don't think Shero would ever make an offer sheet. One day it will come back to haunt you. Plus you burn bridges for potential trades.

You're right, ChiChi maks a fine point there.

Gotta love ChiChi

I don't get the "it will come back to haunt you" thing. If a GM puts his team behind the 8 ball out of spite, well he shouldn't be a GM. If he lets his elite talent get to the point where it can be offer sheeted, he isn't a very good GM.

If a player got to RFA and that players team was unable to match, I'd definitely hope Shero would keep that opportunity open.

It's worth noting that Kennedy is arbitration eligible as well, so an offer sheet for him is essentially zero as well.
