Monday, July 29 is the deadline for NHL teams to submit qualifying offers to their restricted players.
A qualifying offer is the equivalent of a one-year deal tendered to a potential restricted free agent. It's not very often that a pending restricted player accepts their qualifying offer, though it happens, but teams have to submit the offers by the end of the business day on Monday if they hope to maintain their right of first refusal and the protection of draft pick compensation for any potential restricted player. The value of a qualifying offer is subject to arbitration if a player is eligible to file for it.
So what we can expect from the Canucks in terms of tendering qualifying offers to their potential restricted players on Monday? A brief rundown after the jump.
