I thought he was a heartless, gutless euro cheapshoting primadona. But then of course everyone changes their mind once you're actually able to sign the guy.

Just like all the people (leaf fans) who made fun of Chara for years when he was on Ottawa, but as soon as he hit UFA they cream their pants for him.

Maybe, maybe not.

I believe they had 6 or 8 players opt for arbitration prior to the lockout and only Briere and Biron actually went through with the hearing.

I wouldn't be surprised if quite a few of the Sabres got deals done prior to their hearing this time around.

Last we heard at the Avs board, he'd filed for arbitration. Do you have new information?

If Comrie's and Nagy's cases make it to arbitration (Barnett is pretty good at signing people), it'll probably get ugly. Comrie has the bad track record and Nagy simply hasnt fulfilled enough of his potential yet to be paid a lot more.

The Danny Markov trade showed the Coyotes get shot of players with contract trouble PDQ.

While Ribeiros performance was worse then in previous season in every area, Ryder managed to score more goals (30) then during his great rookie season and was a lot better in playoffs (6 games 2+3).

I think this has potential to get ugly real fast...
we offered ryder 2million he wants 2.5 his agent was in the paper saying theres a good chance it would get resolved before they get to arbitration, both sides agreed to let an outsider settle it if they can't get a deal done, i don't see how it could get ugly or why you think we would offer him only 1 million
