regarding Grebeshkov's arbitration - isit possible that the oilers wanted an arbitration case in order to do a post arb buy-out? If a team has a player in arbitration, they can buy out one player in the 48 hour period after the award and it doesn't have to be the player that went to arbitration. They could buy out Staois, Nilson, or Pisani in that time period.

Maybe the oilers and greb have a deal already but want this flexibility.
