Publix The bell whistled at noon today signaling the start of the NHL's free agency period.

There are plenty of names out there on the list, so let's get right to them. The NHL officially came out with the restricted and unrestricted list. To clear up any confusion, I'm also listing the compensation owed if a restricted free agent were to be signed to an offer sheet by another team and then allowed to go to that team by their former.

Confusing? Heck yeah. So, here's an example that I've heard may go down: Ottawa goalie Ray Emery is a RFA, but could be tendered an offer by the L.A. Kings for a lot more money. If he signs the offer sheet and Ottawa decides to let Emery walk, L.A. owes Ottawa a number of draft picks commiserate to how much offered Emery.

If L.A. offers Emery between $3.52-$4.69, the price is a first, second and third-round pick. If the deal is for more, it's two first rounders, a second and a third. If the contract is for more than %5.9 mil per season, the Kings owe four first round picks (and they need to see a psychiatrist pronto.)

Here is the compensation list:

OFFER/COMPENSATION

$773,442 or below/None; Over $773,442 to $1,171,882/3rd; Over $1,171,882 to $2,343,765/2nd; Over $2,343,765 to $3,515,647/1st and 3rd; Over $3,515,647 to $4,687,530/1st, 2nd and 3rd; Over $4,687,530 to $5,859,412/Two 1st, 2nd, 3rd; Over $5,859,412/Four 1st
