Spector's Hockey: Why did Huet apply for arbitration?

From spectorshockey.net:

Spector's Note: That was the question asked by regular contributor "Word" a week ago regarding Montreal Canadiens backup goalie Cristobel Huet, after he sent me a link from the LA Kings official website that noted Huet re-signed with the club before he was dealt to the Habs. I e-mailed Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette, who checked into this matter with the Canadiens. According to the team, Huet had agreed to a new contract with the Kings but there were still minor details being worked out before he would actually sign. Thus, Huet was still without a new contract when he was dealt to the Habs during the draft weekend, making him a restricted free agent eligible for salary arbitration. Hickey says a Canadiens spokesman told him the team hopes to have a settlement with Huet before his case goes to arbitration. My thanks to Mr. Hickey for getting back to me on this.

Some interesting comments. Getting Huet signed before he goes under arbitration would be awesome. I personally could see him being signed for a short-term deal, around 475k-500k per year.

I think he will have more then that. He was a starter in L.A. for a part of last season and he was good since his start in the NHL so I expecte him to win more money then 500K...

Why's everyone undervaluing Huet? $500K? He'll push a million.

Because he had almost accepted getting 400k in L.A.? Isn't that a good reason?

That would be too much of a raise for a guy that shouldn't play that much. At 1M he'd be getting about a 250% increase over last years salary.

I highly doubt he'd take a paycut after the numbers he put up last year. Not outstanding, but certainly raise-worthy.

Looks like I was a little exaggerative with the ~$1M figure though. I'm guessing he'll pull in something like Jussi Markkanen, around the $700K mark.

He had agreed to terms on a 2 year/1.2 million dollar contract with the Kings before the trade so expect a deal of around 600 K per year with the Habs.

Around 500,000 is enough for Huet. He's only a NHL backup

Regular backups gets more than 500 000$. 500 000$US is for the very bad NHL players...like Dagenais

28-29 year old goalies with under 60 games of NHL experience don't make a million dollars per season.
