Thornton?

If Joe goes to arbitration and plays under the deal the arbitrator decides on, will he then be a UFA at the end of that contract?

wouldnt think so

longest Arbitration award is 2 years I think? and Joe is what? 25 years old?

so barring a ridiculously low UFA age in the next CBA I would think not

So is UFA determined by age or years played? I thought I read somewhere that if an arbitrator awarded a 2 year contract, Joe would be a UFA at the end of it. If not, at what point can he become a free agent?

He can become an unrestricted free agent if the Bruins walk away from an arbitrator's decision.

I realize that but at what point do you earn your UFA? How long do you have to play or how old do you have to be? All arbitration and that stuff aside.

31 years old or 10 years in the league with the last year below the league average salary.

So Thornton will either have to wait until he's 31, or sign a contract that has him making less than the league average in the 2006-07 season.
