I looked through the boards and didn't see another thread like this. I was wondering if we would get any compensation draft picks if any of our free agnets were signed by other teams.
I'm not really clear on the rules for the rules for this, but I'm sure someone on here is - I remember last year I read that if Brian Williams was signed we would have gotten an extra first rounder.
Anybody know what the case is this year?
I don't know the exact specifics, but teams get draft picks as compensation for FA's they lose. If you lose a lot of good players or starters, the league will give you say a pick at the end of the 4th round or so, but never an early round pick. I believe the B-Will thing was because he was a RFA and we gave him the highest tender, forcing teams to give up a 1st rounder for him. By comparison, we only offered Brian Russell the low level tender as a RFA and he left without us getting any picks as compensation.
