We've gotta find a way to get Brandon Dubinsky. Big mistake by Sather, imo.

And also Ryan Callahan. My memory is fuzzy, don't RFAs that have their arbitration awards accepted become UFA after their one/two year deals end?

I'm fairly certain yes. I'm not an expert on arbitrary hearings though. Do you know if players can reject their arbitration awards and become UFAs?

No.

http://proicehockey.about.com/od/nhlfreeagents/a/arbitration.htm

A decision must be made within 48 hours of the hearing. When the decision is announced, the team has the right to decline, or "walk away" from the award. If the team exercises this right, the player can declare himself an unrestricted free agent.

Only the team can reject. They always have the power when it comes to the RFA process.

Don't think so. I'm pretty sure that while the club can take a player to arbitration once, there's no such limit on a player taking his club to arbitration.

I was under the impression that a player can only file for arbitration once, and as a result I would think the awarded contract would need to go out to their first eligible year of unrestricted free agency.

When players go to arbitration they go to get a contract. If the team rejects the contract, the player becomes UFA. If the player rejects the contract they basically don't play until they honor the contract.

If they play the contract it has no affect on their UFA status. They follow the rules as normal to the best of my knowledge...

I find it less likely to get Either of these Rangers than it would be to get a Weber. They are just as loved and the Rangers will pay them.

@GMillerTSN: Troy Brouwer signs a 2 year deal with Washington worth $2.35m a year. He was acquired from Chicago for Washington's 1st rd pick this year.

@capgeek: #NHL #Capitals are about $3.33m away from the off-season cap of $70.73m, according to our estimates. Lots of time to sort things out.

What forward just became an ex-Cap?

Alexander Semin come on down! You are the next contestant on the Player is Right for the Red Wings! A 6.7 mil Cap hit with 1 year left on his contract, he can be ours if the Price is Right! I wonder if McPhee has him on the block? He'll likely cut elsewhere to get under the Cap. Semin would be a perfect winger for Datsyuk. Datsyuk with Semin and Hank with Mule. Nice 1-2 punch there. We could replace Hudler with Semin, sign Conklin and still be more than 2 mil under the Cap.

The only situation in which I could see Semin being worth it would be if we got him for a very reasonable price. He's a fairly streaky and unreliable winger who is prone to fits of laziness, and this is the last year on his present contract. And I think he's one player who could be trusted to not be reasonable or reliable in his contract negotiations.

That said, I see no reason why McPhee would have Semin on the trading block. The Caps will have an excellent team this season.

We don't need a soft euro on our 3rd or 4th lines.
