Quick review of Isles restricted free agents

New York Islander Fan Central | 6/25/2008 08:19:00 AM | | | |
According to my list the New York Islanders have to qualify the following restricted free agents by today.

Anyone qualified automatically receives a percentage raise per CBA as a starting point in negotiations on a new contract with both sides having the option to file for arbitration.

To be qualified does not mean a player is signed. Other teams can sign a rfa after 7/1 with an offer sheet but if a club elects not to match compensation in draft picks can become expensive depending on salary and experience of that player.
