He's got his wish, if so.

yes and no

I'm sure his wish, if he actually wanted that to happen, would have been for Brewer's hearing to happen far enough ahead of Hannan's for it to be used as a comparable.

It might not matter that it's afterwards here, as Brewer's ruling won't be done by the time Hannan's case is heard. The decision on Brewer might be made available before Hannan's arbitrator settles though, but he might not use it in that short of a time frame, and even if he does it would be risky for Meehan to use Brewer as a comparable for Hannan, if he's looking for a good salary for Hannan and Brewer were to end up getting a paycut or something?

Brew is simply not worth any more than $2 million - and that's what I'd offer in arb.

Would you swap Brew for Mara? I'd consider it.........
Personally I wouldnt. I dont see the point when Mara makes half of what Brewer does and has been playing better.

Since Gretzky obviously likes Brewer and the Coyotes have Morris, Tanabe and Ballard, I'd have to agree its a feasible trade and hope like hell the Coyotes get something else as well.
