Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't this mean that SK and his agent think that the team is going to win the case on Friday?

I thought so too, why would he file for arbitration if he thought he would be a ufa?

Not surprising. I didnt realize he had arb rights. Nothing shocking here. He had to do that or risk getting nothing more than his QO.

Maybe he figures an arbitrator is going to be dumber than most GMs with his pay.

Kostitsyn's filing for salary arbitration does not take him out of Friday's hearing (cont'd...)

(...cont'd) If the arb rules for the players, Kostitsyn's later hearing would be canceled.

I was sure he didn't have that option. Can be something wrong here?

And I think it is better then UFA anyways.

The good thing with arbitration, other UFA signings are deemed not comparable which could help keep his cap hit low as lots of 40-50pt guys are being given huge paydays. I believe I have that right. Gotta get this guy signed to something cheap. I say 3.25-3.5 for 3 years.

Totally agree. That would be reasonable for both sides, imo. I wonder if Poile just offered like 1.5 or something terrible for a QO.

I heard that SK's agent is the one who started this crap with the NHLPA so this doesn't really surprise me.

Personally, I'm not a big fan. A guy that was a few weeks away from being cut will, at some point soon, be a few weeks away from being cut. He's not a core player to this team and his minutes can be filled. I was perfectly happy to have him fill the Andreas Johannson, Vladimir Ortszagh, Sergie Krivokrasov role (did I spell even one of those correctly? I'll guess no) but to me he proved to be a year to year cheap rate guy not a pay to stay guy. Regardless of the number of goals. Give Bergfors the slot and you get the same number of goals... and maybe even convince him to backcheck as well.

QO's are always the minimum allowable. They just say that you want intend to re-sign the guy. That's when the negotiating starts. Filing for arbitration just puts more pressure on the negotiations. Most guys sign before the hearing.

I think SK saw Macarthurs pay-day, and he figured that he will get close to the same amount from an arbitrator. I kind of agree if it makes it that far.

I'll agree with that and hope SK74 gets it. He was the highest goal scorer on our team and deserves to get paid. Plus he is a playmaker, and can make the kind of passes that Dumont could only dream about.

I can understand that. Because he's had this one breakout season of note, though, I think it would be reasonable to keep him under the $3 million/year mark, too.

If I'm Kostitsyn, I'm looking for a 2 year $4.5-5.5 million dollar deal.

That was pure speculation started on Twitter. The truth is rumored to be that the NHLPA was waiting salivating for some team to even blink wrong, and we were the unlucky ones.

You're naming NHL journeymen/fringe NHLers that were all older and borderline jobless. Kostitsyn is 23, was a highly touted prospect that was never given a chance due to bad blood on his part and MTL coaching/management, and basically carried the team for stretches last season. I fail to see the comparison.

I don't begrudge SK for filing arbitration...it's both common and his right, and typically we can get deals done before it gets that far. Either way, with only one good season, I'd be shocked to see him get more than 3 million per.

Nothing but standard procedure here. Any unsigned player who has arbitration rights is most likely going to file (today was the deadline). I think I read somewhere that 90% of arbitration cases never make it to a hearing.

His agent is the biggest fish in the NHL - Meehan.

Who would not file been in his shoes??? Or do you want to get paid 605k for the next year.
