FromElliot Friedman's 30 thoughts

A few people asked if other teams can talk to Tyler Kennedy now that Pittsburgh didn't qualify him. The answer is no. You can't talk to anyone who didn't receive a qualifying offer until July 1. However, RFAs that received one can talk to other teams about offer sheets. They just can't sign until Friday.


Kind of interesting. The Josh Gorges of the world can get a step ahead on FA and try to get an offer sheet from another team lined up.

I don't get why I keep hearing about "negotiating" or "talking" with regards to offer sheets. From my understanding, which could be wrong, is there is no negotiations whatsoever, there is no dialogue. The team sends over an offer to a contract, and if that player wants, he can sign it, there is no bargaining at play.

Yup, re-signed with Djurgarden, but qualifying him retains his rights.

That's probably more than he was worth. Guys like him are all UFA's this year.

Klubertanz, I thought he was gone in Europe or something....But all of those were fine choices. Again, I would have not qualified Russell. The rest were obvious choices.
He has signed with Djurgarden in the SEL, same team he (and Engqvist) played for prior to last season in Hamilton.

While its a shame SK didn't get a greater return I think its nice we got anything for Maxwell. He ended up disappointing at every turn and likely won't stay at any place for long like most skilled borderline NHLers. It tends to happen for players not talented enough to make a team's top6 and not strong/gritty/hard working enough to settle on a bottom six role.

He might have left for Europe eventually, its doubtful there would have been any place for him on the team with our promising center prospects. In fact it wouldn't surprise me to see in Europe in the next few years.
