Case in point: Nashville
That's ugly. You would think teams would be more careful especially after the Blackhawks did it a couple of seasons ago. How do you make that mistake and how do you wait so long til the deadline to make the QO's? What is their to be gained by waiting til the last minute to make an offer or is this a case of just some bad bookkeeping.
fearthefin: According to @TSNBobMcKenzie the NHL stated that the Predators QO's were legal and the players "will be Restricted Free Agents as of July 1"
Puck Daddy summarizing the story. Four key RFAs, and a handful of others, are apparently the focus.
Thread on the main board: Other: NHL investigating Nashville Preds concerning QO's
The NHL is saying "no problems, move on, nothing to see here".
The NHLPA is saying it's investigating.
Which is, of course, exactly how it started in Tallon-gate.
ask what happens to the blackhawks
With the Blackhawks I don't believe there was ever a definitive decision whether or not they goofed on the QO's. The players were re-signed so no grievance ever went to the CBA arbitrator on whether they should have been UFA's or not.
blackhawks are my number 2 team and according to by blackhawk buddies it was clear cut that Talon missed the deadline in all cases and he had to over pay earlier
True but that goof came back and haunted them last summer.
the pa officially filed a grievance

TSNBobMcKenzie 8:53pm via Twitter for BlackBerryÂ® 7 NSH players would only become UFAs if independent arbitrator George Nicholau ruled in PA's favor. PA will request expedited hearing.
