I'm pretty sure the plan was to sign him all along, he said as much in his first post season press conference. Just because you don't see value in the player doesn't mean MacT doesn't.
If negotiations get really ugly I think dealing him becomes a possibility. Arbitration isn't really ugly, lots of contracts get signed between a player announcing he's going to arbitration and the actual arbitration date.
