Yeah, I think this might be the case. I think if the FA signs with the other team before June 1 or whatever, then it doesn't matter. But, if they sign later (like Pitts did, I think), then we were supposed to have made a minimum offer or something. I'm less clear on that part, though. Plus, there's the whole "signed to a contract and never played on that contract before being released, then getting a new contract" issue for Pitts. If Pitts doesn't count, then I think we end up with nothing. I'm not sure a pick at the very end of the 7th matters that much, anyway, so I'm not going to be too upset if we find out they come up with nothing.
