I don't know what Marchant's value in arbitration would have been-he'd have had a strange case. Let's say he was worth 2.5. Realistically, he was coming off his best season, and wasn't going to match it again. So you can have him until he's 31 for 2.5 per year, if you so desire. That would have saved CBJ something like 2 million bucks. 2 million bucks isn't worth a 2nd round draft pick?
