Arbitration hearings

What happens to players who are RFAs and who filed for arbitration, but don't get re-signed?

For example Bouwmeester: He is a RFA, filed the Panthers for arbitration. If he is not re-signed by the Panthers, is he an UFA afterwards?

If he's not resigned or traded by the hearing then he will be awarded a 1 year deal for this season (08-09), then he will be a UFA in the summer of 09. I am also pretty sure that once Bouw has been awarded his 1 year deal, the Panthers can't negotiate until January or possibly even August of 09.

OK. Thanks.

So the Panthers don't have a choice once the arbitration hearing is held? Bouwmeester gets his contract for one year no matter what.

what happens if the determined amount would put the team over the cap limit?

Minors for some and possible buyouts for others provided the team has 2 arbitration awards. The team then has 2 days (beginning on the third day after the team receives its final decision) to buyout a contract. This is the "Ordinary Course Buyout outside the Regular Period". A team can use this option only three times for the term of the CBA.

Article 11.18 indicates that if a team has only ONE hearing, then they can not exercise the Buyout outside the regular period clause.


and the arbitrator CAN NOT evaluate the team's cap situation when rendering his decision.

Once the arbiter's decision is released, the team has up to 48 hours to decline the arbitrated contract. If they do so, the player will then become an UFA.

The player has no similar power to decline the contract, however.

oh yeah.. and the walk away..

edit - but if the award was for a player like a Bouwmeester, I don't think a team would walk away.
