Arbitration is taking place under the old CBA and is based upon relative salary relations. As they say in baseball, arbitration puts the team at the whim of the worst mistake of their competition. Arbitration is going to be interesting for the next couple of years because teams will argue that it is a new world, while player reps are going to continue to base their case upon existing contracts that may still be floating around...

basically arbitration cases are going to have a float period where it will take some time to equalize to a new CBA format.
