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.

"Kulikov is an experienced, physical left-shot defenseman who skates well. His ability to play both the right and left side brings value to our defense corps."

Defenseman Dmitry Kulikov , one of the youngest unrestricted free agents on the market, reached a three- year deal with the Jets on Saturday. The trade deadline was disappointing this year in terms of number of players moved. Among the many head-scratchers was the lack of goalie movement and
