  • Semyon Der-Arguchintsev - QO of $787,500 and a two-way deal
  • Filip Král - QO of $787,500 and a two-way deal

Unqualified players are sometimes re-signed by their original team, and the lack of QO is about removing arbitration from the equation or a salary amount the team considers too high.

In order to open the second buyout window, the Maple Leafs or Ilya Samsonov would have to elect arbitration next week.
