The Boston Bruins have tendered qualifying offers to 13 players, it was announced today by Bruins General Manager Mike O'Connell. Teams must tender qualifying offers to players who had 2004-05 contracts and are under the age of 31 in order to retain their compensation rights. Qualifying offers are in three groups, based on the value of 2004-05 contracts adjusted by the 24% rollback: players at $660,000 or less receive qualifying offers at 110% of that amount; players earning more than $660,000 up to $1 million receive qualifying offers at 105% of that amount; and players earning more than $1 million receive qualifying offers at 100% of that salary. If a Group II restricted free agent is not tendered a qualifying offer by his club by 5:00 p.m. on July 31, he will become an unrestricted free agent on August 1st.
