However, within the context of the current arbitration process and NHL salaries, this is not an outlandish pricetag for Kvasha, whatsoever, IMO.
A nice little CBA issue for the owners would be to breakdown the % award increase per arbitration player over the past 3 years.

I'm sure the avg. would be pretty shocking and a strong reason for salary escalation.

And beyond the basics (inflation, league avg., etc...) why does a player deserve a RAISE EVERY SEASON?

via arbitration, contract, qualifier, etc...
