In the NHL if you send a offer sheet to a RFA you have to give up draft picks, which limits these deals happening a lot in the NHL. The last big one was Phil Kessel going to Toronto, but getting him they had to give up 3 first round draft picks.

The draft picks would depend on something like this...

MIN - 3m - 2nd round pick
3.1-5 - 2 Second Round Picks
5.1-8 - 1st Round Pick
8.1-10 - 1st Round Pick & Second Round Pick
10.1-13 - 2 First Round Picks
13.1-16 - 2 First Round Picks & 2 Second Round Picks
17.-MAX - 3 First Round Picks & 3 Second Round Picks.

Theres rumors out there that Lin might go to Houston with a 7.5cap hit, in return getting the RFA, Houston would give there first round pick to New York. And With Fields going to Toronto, the Knicks would receive 2 second round picks.

This would limit all these big contracts and RFA going elsewhere easily.

It doesn't work as well in the NBA as in other sports because the draft system is much different. There aren't as many rounds so it's harder to separate values of the different tenders.

Works well for both teams. The team loses a top RFA but in return they get draft picks.

You'll find the majority of players just taking the qualifying offer then, and hitting unrestricted free agency in the next year.

I dont really know why dont they do this by default anyway.

I know i would.

Pay me a good insurance like say pay 3 million and insure myself from injury for 50 million.

Then CHOOSE where the **** do i go.

thats the most ignorant statment i've ever heard. Not only is there far more parity in the NHL (the winning percentages between the highest and lowest teams are far closer than the NBA) exhibiting a much less volatile league. This is because the free agency rules in hockey actually make sense in addition to having an actual "hard cap". Not only this, but the recent ratings for the NHL have skyrocketed while the NBA ratings have been on the decline. Hockey is quickly becoming huge in the states while basketball is losing its luster. But hey, shows how much you know about sports huh ? :shrug:

No way. If anything, mimic the NFL and give compensatory picks at the end of rounds.

this years finals had one of the highest ratings in years, so before you call someone ignorant check your facts.

they already have an advantage to keep their young talent.

Can offer MORE YEARS.

than other teams.


Seriously, enough **** with the DRAFT sending you for 5 years to somwhere you may not want to stay.

and you did nothing to refute my point about parity. When's the last time an 8 seed played a 6 seed in the nba finals.... don't worry, i'll wait
