FREE AGENTS SUBJECT TO COMPENSATION AND RIGHT TO MATCH - GROUP 2

These players have been tendered a qualifying offer by their respective Clubs and are subject to draft-choice compensation and right to match. The draft choice compensation scale is based on compensation offered by the new Club:

OFFER                                          COMPENSATION

$1,110,249 or below                     None
Over $1,110,249 to $1,682,194    3rd-round choice
Over $1,682,194 to $3,364,391    2nd-round choice
Over $3,364,391 to $5,046,585    1st-round and 3rd-round choice
Over $5,046,585 to $6,728,781    1st-round, 2nd-round and 3rd-round choice
Over $6,728,781 to $8,410,976    Two 1st-round choices, one 2nd- and one 3rd-round choice
Over $8,410,976                           Four first-round choices

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS - GROUP 3

These players have qualified for Group 3 Free Agency (age 27 or older or with at least seven Accrued Seasons) and are Unrestricted Free Agents.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS - GROUP 6

These players qualify for unrestricted free agency, having met the requirements for Group 6 free agency. This group is defined as players whose contracts have expired, are age 25 or older, have completed three or more professional seasons, and (i) in the case of a player other than a goaltender, have played less than 80 NHL games (regular-season and playoff), or (ii) in the case of a goaltender, have played less than 28 NHL games (regular-season and playoff). Please note that these amounts are subject to pro-rating due to the 48-game season in 2012-13.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

These players were not tendered a qualifying offer and are therefore Unrestricted Free Agents not subject to a right to match or draft choice compensation.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.

— Jordan Eberle on taking his game and the Edmonton Oilers to the next level
