Qualifying offer numbers for RFAs

June 12, 2013, by

The Rangers have five RFAs headed into the offseason. In order to qualify for offer sheet compensation, the organization must present qualifying offers to their RFAs before the start of free agency. All QOs are one year deals. Here are the salaries to be presented in the QOs:

Of the five RFAs, Sauer will likely not receive a QO. None of the other four will accept their QO either. This is just a step in the process.

  1. Paul in sunrise says:

    They should qualify Sauer. Keep his rights. Why not.

    • Dave says:

      Why not? Because it is $1.25 million in cap space.

      • Tim B says:

        Its also one of the 50 contract limit thing which the Rangers already have a proben with. Make it easier and dont retain his rights

  2. Rangers Fan in Boston says:

    In completely unrelated news: Penguins sign Dan Bylsma to a 2-year extension.

    Too bad…

    Now who’s it gonna be?

  3. Jared says:


    If they give Sauer a QO, he’ll count against the 50 contract limit and he’ll cost them at least the signing bonus. I just think it’s too unlikely that he plays at this point.

    how far do you think a team with these guys on it would go
    And a bunch of HHOF guys like
    Anderson Gilbert Hartman Eddie O Hudson Noonan Matteau Larmer MacTavish Tikkanen Kypreos Kocur Lowe Karpotsev Lidster Wells Zubov
    They had 2 PP QB Leetch Zubov
    Crease clearing D man Buek
    Toughness Kocur Kypreos Graves Buek
    Agitater Tikkanen
    Leaders Graves Leetch Larmer Anderson Kovalev
    Good top 4 D Leetch Buek Lowe Zubov
    And of course they had Messier
    Not exactly a superstar roster just the right peice’s 1994 1994 1994 It can happen again we only need to add a few peice’s not a bunch of star players . 1 tough D man who can hit
    1 PP QB
    Little toughness and speed on the 3rd and 4th lines . And then play as a team and stick up for each another every game . Make it happen Slats

      The top five names you listed were all superstars. That’s a lot of stars for one team.

  5. Bitter Zen says:

    I would only categorize Messier,Leetch and Richter as true stars on that team. Zubov had a real nice career as well. Graves put together a few great seasons also. What made that team great was nobody could push them around – not the Flyers, Devils nobody.
