You got it. The guy has got no track record. Tell me, if Andy Delmore was eligible for arbitration after his big year, should he have got 4 mil or so?
It seems to me, the arbitrators project based on 1 year that the guy will continue to do that in the future that which he had done in that previous year. The arbitrators seem to ignore a that a guy can easily revert to his previous performances (like a 2.8avg for Kipper in his previous 40 games which is terrible, but which is seemingly ignored), instead thinking that a guy will continue his merry way to superstardom, kinda like Giguere who led the duckklings to all of the non playoffs last year with a 2.62 avg.
