Quick Hits: 2011 NHL RFA Compensation

1

A lot of Sabres fans would love to poach RFA Shea Weber from the Nashville Predators.

Let’s face it: any offer sheet tendered towards Weber would be immediately matched by Nashville.  Still, due to this year’s relatively weak UFA class, NHL GM’s may very well make more RFA offers than expected.

Here’s a look at what it will cost to yank an RFA off another team’s roster this season (via The Sporting News):

An offer with a $1,034,249 annual cap hit or less: No compensation

More than $1,034,249 — $1,567,043: Third-round pick

More than $1,567,043 — $3,134,088: Second-round pick

More than $3,134,088 — $4,701,131: First and third-round pick

More than $4,701,131 — $6,268,175: First, second and third-round pick

More than $6,268,175 — $7,835,219: Two first-round picks, a second and third

More than $7,835,219 and higher: Four first-round picks

Still interested in Weber?  I didn’t think so.  How about Zach Parise instead?
