Restricted free agents still waiting on offers

Monday, 08.16.2010 / 10:45 AM / NHL Free Agency 2010

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Lost in a summer that has kept us entertained with the ongoing Ilya Kovalchuk saga, the plethora of veteran unrestricted free agents still available and the salary cap rearing its ugly head in Chicago is another story that merits attention in the hockey world.

There are still several well-known restricted free agents who remain left wide open for teams to swoop in and sign to an offer sheet. Handing out offer sheets to other teams' restricted free agents isn't done cavalierly in the NHL, but it is a practice that has been tried in the past.

For instance, there is the infamous case of the Oilers' giving Dustin Penner an offer sheet of five years and a reported $21.25 million in the summer of 2007. It infuriated then-Anaheim GM Brian Burke, who chose not to match it, thus letting Penner walk to Edmonton.
