Holik was not happy at what the arbitrator awarded him, and I remember him being very critical about it, and coming right out, and saying he would most likely not be with the Devils next year. He was very insulted by the arbitrators ruling.
No he was not insulted by the ruling. He was pissed off that the team preached a team concept and defensive first mentality then used goal production against him in arbitration.
