Group II's without arbitration rights are always laggers. There is no urgency or leverage.

Quote:
Contract talks between the Vancouver Canucks and defenceman Chris Tanev are lacking urgency, Tanev’s agent Ross Gurney said Monday.

The 23-year-old Tanev is a restricted free agent without arbitration rights. He can entertain offer sheets from other NHL clubs but the Canucks would have the right to match. Tanev made $900,000 last season, his third as a professional.

“We have dialogue from time to time but it’s been very, very slow moving,” said the Vancouver-based Gurney. “Restricted free agents without arbitration rights are in a classification all their own. There doesn’t seem to be any urgency right now but, eventually, we’ll make progress.”
