But arbitration is a non-binding event. The team can still walk away from the ruling at which they become a UFA. The Sens just cut away all the wasted effort. 

The team can ONLY walk away if the award is over ~$4.1MM.  And the team can only walk away from 1 of every 2 arbitration awards.

If the arbitrator were to give him a megaraise, they'd be hosed.

Yes, and see this award being over $4.1M too. Or, at least the risk of this level of award is higher than not.

If the award is that high, the risk is minimal (unless only 1 other guy actually has a hearing and then they may have to live w/ 1 bad award) but if the award is just below that AND he is slotted to be 3rd line rather than 2nd then that kind of award gives them a $4MM+ player on every line AND at least the top 2 D pairings.  You eat up an internal cap awfully quick doing that.  (Heck an $81.5MM cap gets eaten up quickly that way.)

I can understand the teams position here. They could end up having to pay him a million a year more than they have him valued at. If his agent is asking say 3.9-4.0 then let him hit the market. I would be surprised if he will get close to that when teams are cutting people.

I like that because of how terrible that trade was  already, and now that contract as well makes it worse. It does scare me about Reinhart’s contract though...

Darn you. 

And ya this looks hilarious for the Habs. Good.

This one makes me sad. He was a guy I thought would be a good fit at 2LD that might go cheap. He went for a 5th.

Columbus clearing space. Was it for budget, or do they have a big move coming?
