Question on RFA's

If an RFA gets an offer that doesn't get matched by his team ex: Stamkos gets offered $ 12 M a year for 10 years by the NYI's - does the RFA have no choice but to accept it or can he refuse to go? Just wondering what the rule is? Thanks

RFAs can either accept or deny an offer sheet themselves. Once they sign, it's up to the team that holds their rights to match the offer sheet. If they choose not to, that RFA becomes property of the team that offered him the sheet, and the team he once played for gets compensation, i.e. draft picks.
