Briere's contract was nuts. According to TSN it was based on the salary contracts offered to players like Havlat. It's crap like this that makes me wonder why the NHL even had a lockout. Too bad they can't have reverse arbitration when the player sucks and the team wants to recoup some of their mis-spent money.
Hey Icon, I'm guessing you're a Flames fan.. any word on Daniel Ryder's progress at their prospects camp??
Under the new CBA, teams do have the option of taking players to arbitration. However, no teams elected that option this year.
