Blackhawks Offseason 2012: Chicago Is Only Team Absent From List Of RFA's To Receive Qualifying Offers

The Chicago Blackhawks are the only team that's absent from the recent NHL free agent list consisting of restricted free agents receiving qualifying offers, as Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun Times.

Teams were required to make qualifying offers to any RFA's before Sunday's deadline in order to retain negotiating rights, and every team had at least one player on the list but the Blackhawks. By retaining those rights, the team is able to match any offer sheet that's given to the player.
