What's the deadline for signing Henrique to a new deal before he turns UFA?  My understanding is that the qualifying offers expire at some point - I thought it was approaching.  But I could be wrong.  Feel free to correct me.  Or does he simply sign the offer if no long term deal?

 

I think if he doesn't take the qualifying offer, which he didn't, he has to hold out.  That's what Subban and O'Reilly did.  Another team could give him an offer sheet, but Lou has said he'd match it.

It would take years for him to become a UFA. If he doesn't sign by December 1st, I believe he would be ineligible to play in the 2013-14 season. Unless that's changed in the new CBA.

 

 

Players very rarely take a qualifying offer. It's usually a formality that keeps the player as an RFA so the team can negotiate further.

I really hope Henrique plays consistently at the wing this year. It seems like the roster that's in place would yield for that to happen, plus I've always felt his game was never really that of a center.

Lamoriello wouldn’t discuss the status of the team’s other restricted free agents, saying he’d probably have an update by the end of the week.

Would someone with knowledge of how it works explain to me why Henrique isn't eligible for arbitration?

Yep. He's just throwin' logic to the wind because no one honestly believes an RFA has leverage.

Still not signed. Not even reading this thread. Will we have to endure a season full of Henrique hates the Devils instead of actually thinking about hockey. How rare.

Well lets see. Kovy retired and left a big hole in the Devils offense

With Kovy retiring that freed up a lot of Cap money

Devils need offensive forwards

 

Doesn't that sound like leverage?

He's an RFA with no arbitration rights.  Henrique has absolutely NO leverage, regardless of who the Devils lost to FA/retirement this offseason.  What are his options other than holding out?  Is he going to play in the KHL, because that's the only leverage he could possibly hold over the Devils at this time (and we all know he's not going to go there - so does Lou).  Or maybe he wants to play for my beer league team and "retire" from the NHL in the process.  I can offer him the ability to play for free, and a 6 pack of Schlitz after every game.  Maybe I should call his agent and get the ball rolling on that.

 

He's likely deciding between a long term deal that may eat up some of his FA years, or a deal that takes him to his 1st eligible FA at a lower AAV.

That's is exactly where they are at a short vs long term deal.
