Devils RFA qualifying offers ( Salmela not qualified )

Ledger_NJDevils Rich Chere
Devils qualified Mark Fraser, Matt Corrente, Vladimir Zharkov, Matt Taormina, Maxim Noreau, Jeff Frazee, Steve Zalewski, Nathan Perkovich

Devils did not qualify defenseman Anssi Salmela today, who becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Before there's an uproar on Salmela, lets get 2 things straight.

He's a 7th defenseman, 6th at best. And he has no future within the organization.

Later Eckford. I had high hopes for him at the beginning of the season.

Alexander Vasyunov's agent, Mark Gandler, confirmed what was reported last week that Vasyunov signed 1-year deal with Yaroslavl of KHL.

He was qualified so we retain his rights.

ticked we qualified Fraser and not Salmela.

NOTE: I know he's not that good before anyone puts my head on a stick, just think he's better than Fraser

Fraser is by no means better than Salmela.

Sami Lepisto was not qualified by Columbus. I would not mind signing him to replace Salmela.

Eckford is UFA not RFA, but likely to not return.

I hope I don't have to watch Fraser play on this team again.

They can still re-sign Salmela, but I'm shocked that they qualified Fraser at all

Jay Leach was getting time over him last year......

Perhaps Fraser will just be used in the AHL? Otherwise I don't understand it

Wouldn't be surprised to see them re-sign Salmela anyway. Qualifying Fraser confounds me.

Anssi Salmela will likely go to salary arbitration.



Wait, what?

Khudobin would be a good option too.

So would 20 other teams. AT least Gilroy is from the area and would probably like to sign with either us or the Isles.

We didn't qualify Oduya a few years ago, but then brought him back as a UFA before he hit the market. I really don't put any stock into any of this. We all know that Lou ALWAYS has a plan and whatever it is, he can only do so much in so little time.

Agree, Rags ruined him. He'd be a nice reclaimation project.

Am I mad that Salmela didn't get qualified? Meh... I love Salmela, but I saw it coming.

Am I mad that Fraser got qualified instead of Salmela? Yes.

Fraser was qualified in order to work the carving station in the fire lounge.

The Devils basically didn't give Salmela a qualifying offer to keep him from having arbitration rights. It's likely he would have filed.

Prevents a Fraser situation.
