I like Babcock calling the league out a tiny bit there with the quote about "The league wouldn't be happy if we did that to...(Crybaby) or (Big Nose)"

I'm pretty sure by "they" he meant the Penguins, not the league.

Perhaps, but then he should've 'roughed' it by saying $900k. I'm not trying to be difficult, I'm just saying he can't make less than $892,500 next year based on the qualifying offer he already had to have received in order to stay a Red Wing RFA.

Simple FYI for those that are interested in our unsigned RFA's:

Restricted Free Agents: A player set to become a restricted free agent will become an unrestricted free agent if his current team does not make him a qualifying offer that adheres to the minimum raise policy of the CBA. The deadline to qualify all RFA's is June 29

* Qualifying Offers: A qualifying offer must include the following minimum raises:
o Previous salary < $660,000: 10% increase in salary
o Previous salary < $1,000,000: 5% increase in salary
o Previous salary > $1,000,000: Match previous season's salary

His salary last year was $710,000, his cap hit was $850,000 because of bonuses. So then the minimum he could make is $745,500.(5% increase). Now I'm not sure if it is calculated with the bonuses included or not, but I figured I'd just throw it out there.

anybody else wann asee philly send an offer sheet to niemi?

Philly has virtually no cap space. Not gonna happen unless they make a trade. I'm expecting they will make some kind of trade though.
