Ten notable NHL non-tenders

  Ten notable NHL non-tenders While these players (among the others who were non-tendered) can become unrestricted free agents on Friday, some teams will still be negotiating with their players to try to get them at a lower salary than either their qualifying offer or their expected arbitration salary. Usually, a handful wind up re-signing, so at least for some of these players, their fates may not be completely sealed yet.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Mike Hoffman willing to wait until after start of season to sign with new team .
Mike Hoffman, ranked No. 4 among PHR’s Top 50 UFA’s this off-season, is undoubtedly the best player still available on the open market. The topic of almost daily speculation, everyone wants to know where the top goal scorer on the free agent market will end up. Well, the waiting may continue for a quite a while longer. TSN’s Pierre LeBrun reports that Hoffman and his camp are willing to be patient and wait for a deal that measures up to the veteran forward’s ability. Just how long will they wait? Potentially until after the season begins in January.
