The impact of arbitration

Al Strachan on Slam this morning
"You probably can't afford to keep them, and even if you could, the salary cap won't let you. And these are players you drafted five, six or seven years ago, so you've just wasted all that time trying to build through the draft.

You have no choice but to let them walk away.

It has happened twice in the past few days. It's going to happen a lot more in the future."

Ratcheting will have arbitrators looking at deals like Havlat as full market value and thats what counts baby. All players are closer to being free agents in terms of cost earlier.
