    I can't find it anywhere, but has it been released how much qualifying offers will be for the upcoming season? 75%, 100%, or something totally different?
     
  2. I'm interested in an answer to this one too.

    $ 450k - 650 k = 110%
    $ 651k - 1.0 mil = 105%
    $ 1.0 mil + = 100%

    Really? If so, chalk another one up for the players. I thought owners were pressing hard for lower than 100% QOs, but I guess the players won that battle.

    actually this is a win for the owners, it used to be 15% across the board(for instance if the Ducks wanted to qualify Kariya last summer they would have to pay him 11.5 million since he was making 10 million his last season). How he got offended that they didn't want to pay him that is beyond me.

    That is incorrrect. In the previous CBA if the player made above the league average, as was the case with Kariya, they had to be qualified at 100%. If they made less than the league average, they were qualified at 110%.

    And Kariya got offended because instead of qualifying him at $10M they offered him $6M, a 40% paycut.

    CONFIRMATION OF BUY OUTS

    Restricted free agents who aren't tendered qualifying offers by their clubs during the eight-day window will become unrestricted free agents on Aug. 1.

    Under the new agreement, players earning less than $660,000 (after consideration of the 24 percent rollback) in their last contracted season must be qualified at 110 percent of that salary -- a 10 percent raise.

    Players earning between $660,000 and $1 million (after consideration of the rollback) in their last contracted season must be qualified at 105 percent of that salary -- a 5 percent raise.

    And, players earning more that $1 million (after consideration of the rollback) in their last contracted season must be qualified at 100 percent of that salary.

    hmmm...
    These #s are "after consideration of the rollback".
    Which leads me to believe, that these are 1-time #s, to be used during these specific dates.
    None of us have seen the CBA, yet.
    Let's not borrow trouble, by getting worked up over 'stuff' we don't know.
    There'll be plenty of time for that, once we think we know.;)
