The new CBA could change some details in there, but the differences are fairly significant among a short arbitration award, a one year deal that could very well mean a trade, and happy Oshie on a four or five year deal. I'm not too concerned, but 's more than just, "Oh, well, he's under contract, no problem."
Which is why I personally would like to see him traded if thay are getting the impression he wants to hit free agency.
