I was going through the CBA, and Exhibit 15 (important dates) says that on July 15th, "Qualifying Offers Expire Automatically" by 5:00pm. I'd imagine this wouldn't matter for arbitration cases, but how does it impact Doughty/Stamkos? Do they become UFAs? I can't imagine they would, or the 15th would have been a much more publicized deadline. Does anyone know what the CBA means by this? EDIT In section 10.2 it says the club can opt to extend the deadline, what are the guidelines for this? Does anyone know how long the deadlines of Doughty/Stamkos have been extended?
