Just for example .... Goligoski could have gone to arbitration and probably got a pretty significant raise that would have allowed him to become an UFA next season.
That's a pretty good argument for an agent: meet our demands or we'll go get a big arbitration settlement and test free agency.
Goli was already making $2.5 million this year, and he would easily get a raise into the $3 to $4 million range.
So consider a 1 year deal for let's say $3.5 million vs. the 4 year deal he signed. It's a good trade off. Arbitration just gives players a very good negotiating chip.
