The Thrashers made qualifying offers to several restricted free agents on Monday.
The Thrashers made qualifying offers to restricted free agents Colby Armstrong, Jordan Lavallee, Scott Lehman, Kari Lehtonen, Grant Lewis, Jim Slater and Boris Valabik.
Offers were not made to Chris Thorburn and Dan Turple, meaning they will become unrestricted free agents on July 1.
However, don’t look for Thorburn to go anywhere. I have indications that the team will continue active negotiations with Thorburn and expect to get a deal done.
