I was just about to make a comment about that. Numbers wise he had a better season then MacArthur but gets paid less? :huh:

Well, Boston has 48 hours to yea or nay it, so we'll see what happens. What's their cap situation like? This seems like a really fair ruling to me.

They should change the name from arbitration to arbitrary.

Every admissable piece of evidence says Blake Wheeler should've been awarded more than MacArthur.

Chiarelli will likely put Ryder on waivers and keep Wheeler. He's likely trying to deal Savard but it's tricky. He has a no trade/movement clause and there are only a few select teams he will agree to be traded to. But then again, Boston does have a history of walking away with arbitration awards. Years ago it was Dmitri Khristich who ended up going to the Leafs and he sucked the rest of his career. Anson Carter may have been another one. Maybe they traded him. So long ago, I don't recall. Now I sound like Oliver North.

I'm thinking that the arbitrator in question got an earful from the league.
