The 2011-12 NHL season is almost here, but there are some young players still looking to get paid.
In the following slides, we'll examine eight players that aren't yet 26 years old that are still looking to get paid. Seven of the eight are restricted free agents, and the circumstances of each players' contract issues are unique. Some players are just waiting for their agent and the team to agree on something (money, years, maybe both), while others are trying to determine if there's still a place for them in the locker room they called home last year.
Either way, these eight players carry intriguing value on the ice, even if they haven't determined it financially.
