Here is a list of Sharks who are free agents this summer
|Player||Free Agent Group||1999-00 Salary|
|Owen Nolan||Restricted||$2.5 million|
If another team signs a restricted free agent to an offer sheet the original team has one week to match the offer or else the player is signed by the other team. The original team then gets draft picks as compensation depending on how much money the player was offered. For each million dollars a player is offered the original team gets a 1st round pick, with a maximum of 5 1st round picks.
If a team signs an unrestricted free agent the original team automatically loses that player, it can't match the offer.
