Each year there may be a rumor or two involving a team signing a restricted free agent to an offer sheet. The draft compensation that teams would have to pay for signing a 2011 NHL restricted free agent without the contract being matched. We also included compensation dating back to 2008 for your viewing pleasure.
Each year the salaries will go up at the same rate with the league player salary average. Teams have to use their own drafts picks for the compensation.
