The NHL restricted free agent market, an area of the offseason where we never see some action but we always see plenty of talk.
Every fan wants their team to make RFA offers and get players signed to offer sheets, but GM's across the league stay quiet and we haven't seen an offer sheet signed since Ryan O'Reilly signed one back in 2013.
This year we have some pretty big names on the board, franchise type players which include Mikko Rantanen, Mitch Marner, Sebastien Aho, Brayden Point and Matthew Tkachuk just to name a few.
Will we finally see some offer sheets signed?
The NHL has updated their compensation plan.
