And Dustin Byfuglien? Please. It's because of situations like this that management and players do their best to reach an agreement before the hearing.

Unless of coarse you are comfortable with paying what you are going to have to to get him now or except 4 late first round draft picks.

The way they signed Peka is how Nashville needs to work. If it does not work out that way actually get something for your investment/ Dont look like the laughing stock of the league and get 5 cents on the dollar. Simple business.
I remember Peterson doing an interview sometime after the arbitration and basically said Bousquet refused to settle right before the meeting and wanted to go through with it.

We really don't know all the facts to say one side or another is responsible for the arbitration, or if any bad feelings that may or may not exist.
