In Topic: Nyquist Files For Arbitration

06 July 2015 - 05:31 AM

The mistake many making here is assuming that this case even gets before an arbitrator.
 
Neither side wants that, no player wants to hear his employer explain all his shortcomings in an effort to cut his salary. Nyquist has excellent regular season production but he'd be roasted on his awful playoff numbers to this point. Still I think he'd get a better offer by going to arbitration than what I think he's going to sign before it gets there.
 
I expect him to take a deal in the 3.75 to 4.25 million range, similar to Kadri's but perhaps a little longer. 


You're exactly right. This has very little potential to make it to arbitration. I present cases periodically before outside arbitrators, and if people think divorce hearings get ugly employer arbitration is a whole different animal.

Kronwall - Ericsson
Quincey - Green
Smith - Dekeyser
Kids


I kinda like Dekeyser with Smith. He will cover for his brain farts, and allow smith to attack in the offensive zone. Then again I suppose Ericsson could do that too and allow Deke to become the #2 that he seems destined to be...
