These are players that 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:


$1,395,053 or below / None
Over $1,395,053 to $2,113,716 / Third-round choice
Over $2,113,716 to $4,227,437 / Second-round choice
Over $4,227,437 to $6,341,152 / First-round and third-round choice
Over $6,341,152 to $8,454,871 / First-round, second-round and third-round choice
Over $8,454,871 to $10,568,589 / Two first-round choices, one second- and one third-round choice
Over $10,568,589 / Four first-round choices


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


These are players that 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 fewer than 80 NHL games (regular-season and playoff), or (ii) in the case of a goaltender, have played fewer 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.


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