Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that any player that fit into a certain category of eligible players could go to arbitration if they can't agree to a contract as an RFA. If OEL does not have to worry about that (i.e. he fills his quota of games played to make him a UFA or bypass an RFA year), then it is a moot point.
So let's say that the Coyotes offer him $5 million/yr as an RFA. OEL doesn't agree to it and either he or the team goes to arbitration on OEL's behalf. If the arbiter rules for $8 million, and the Coyotes do not respond to that amount within 48 hours, then he is a UFA, correct? Meaning he is available (potentially and very well likely) for more money and a longer term then what the Coyotes offer was and maybe for more money and term than the arbiter's ruling...
