I also expect the contract to tick off a year because it benefits the group as a whole. Sure Roberts and Nieuwndyk would like to get their money, but do you think Havlat/Nash want another year served before they gets arbitration rights
Remember, the reporst are that the agents aren't looking for arbitration rights for their players, they are looking to get them UFA's. And if just one agent is able to get his client declared a UFA, that means EVERY player who's contract expires on July 1st, over or under 31, will be a UFA. We cuold get a whole new NHL when play resumes.
