The Lightning had until midnight Monday to make qualifying contract offers to a set of potential free agents, and among these free to go elsewhere is goaltender Anders Lindback.

Six who received qualifying offers are forwards Brett Connolly, Cody Kunyk Richard Panik and Philippe Paradis along with defensemen Dmitry Korobov and Andrej Sustr.

Not extended offers, therefore now unrestricted free agents, were Lindback, forward Geoff Walker and D Keith Aulie and Charles Landry.

Players who were tendered an offer can still sign elsewhere, but Tampa Bay has the right of first refusal or draft choice compensation.
