The Dallas Stars extended qualifying offers to six players on Wednesday: forwards Loui Eriksson, B.J. Crombeen, Vojtech Polak, Konstantin Pushkarev and Francis Wathier, as well as defenseman Vadim Khomitski. Three others did not receive offers: forwards Marius Holtet and Janos Vas, and defenseman Jussi Timonen.
I'm going to try (probably unsuccessfully) to explain this stuff in a nutshell. Bear with me. Teams must extend a one-year qualifying offer to a current restricted free agent by June 25 to have the right of first refusal or draft compensation if that player signs an offer sheet with someone else. The offers expire the afternoon of July 15.
Oh, and by the way, the Stars' development camp is from July 6-11. Sessions are open to the public.
