What happens if neither side can agree a price/hit?

They both have to live with whatever is decided in arbitration. If the Canadiens don't want to pay whatever amount it is set at, then Price would be a UFA. So there is no way that is happening.

Contract will get done, just a smart move to file for arbitration so he can't be offer sheeted.

Price will become a UFA if the Canadiens decline the arbitrators decision.

I think the Leafs need a goalie the most, and Burke is very clear about his opinion of offer sheets.

Can't hurt. As long as you communicate intentions satisfactorily with Price's camp, so there's no misunderstanding. It's not like the Habs need to use the arbitration case on anybody else.

A long time since I read the CBA... if it's club-elected, do they get another buyout opportunity later too, or is that just for player-elected cases? (Buying time on getting insight into what might be coming down the pipe wrt to the Gomez situation couldn't hurt either)...

Hopefully for the Habs it doesn't come down to arbitration. Its a terrible situation when a team has to argue why their player isn't good enough for the money they want.

This is one of the biggest misconceptions.

Burke isn't against offer sheets, he hated that the Oilers did it without letting him know about it with Penner.

Burke actually threaten the Bruins with signing Kessel to an offersheet.

He he actually traded a 2nd, and 3rd, to get the Leafs own 2nd round pick back, which was held by the Hawks, so that he would have a 1st,2nd,3rd round pick to be able to sign Kessel to an offer sheet.

And that is why Kessel ended up costing the Leafs, two 1st, 2nd, and a 3rd.

Don't the Habs not have a choice in the matter, it's up to Carey if he wants to take a 1 year, 2 year, negotiate further, or remain an RFA?

That is only for player elected. As team elected arbitration, if it goes that far both sides are bound by the decision offered by the arbiter. Montreal would not have the option to decline the deal. It's not like they would ever consider declining anyway though.

Tampa? It's not worth the risk. That's the point.

There are no Walk Away Rights for a Team Elected Arbitration - the Habs would have to sign the award SPC and Price could not become a UFA.

Correct - sort of.

The Habs can't walk away from a team elected arbitration.

Price can elect either a 1 yr or 2 yr award - the party which did not elect arbitration elects the term, 1 year or 2, with the caveat that if the player is 1 yr from UFA eligibility then only a 1 yr term can be elected.

Both sides can continue to negotiate and sign any deal they choose before arbitration.

Price cannot remain an RFA - at least for this year. He either negotiates a new deal or signs the arbitration award. He cannot sign an offer sheet.

Uh, Bergevin said they are in talks and there is no issues. Just a preventative measure. Price wants to be in montreal and will sign before abitration. He has no reason to seek a 1 year deal when he can cash in long term.

Not exactly, Price can want to be a Hab as much as possible, but if someone tosses him Rinne money, he's gonna laugh his way to the bank. I'm sure this move is to ensure that the Habs and Price work out a deal that is fair for both parties.

Standard move for a high profile player who is eligible. Gives the team more negotiating power.
