In my experience in watching the way negotiations have gone with restricted free agents (RFAs) in the past with other NHL teams, I’m NOT worried about the contract negotiations for either player, and I’m very certain that a deal WILL get done for both players before the regular season starts. RFAs are not allowed to sign with just any team they want like unrestricted free agents (UFAs).
