Last summer, Zach Parise and Shea Weber were among some very big names who filed for salary arbitration but never made it that far. In fact, no one had a hearing – even if many inked deals right before they were going to go “on trial.” This year’s list isn’t quite as impressive, but there are still 15 intriguing names including Florida Panthers winger Kris Versteeg, St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie and Edmonton Oilers eight-point-game-man Sam Gagner.

The hearings will take place sometime between July 20-August 4. Here’s the list of players (note: it was originally 16 but David Perron already reached a deal with the Blues).

How much will Gagner’s historic flurry of activity help his bank account? Will things get contentious between the Predators and Kostitsyn considering what happened with Sergei’s brother Andrei? Could alarm clock woes boil back up with Oshie?

If last year is any indication, those players won’t get that far, but things could get awfully interesting if they happen to reach arbitration.

    Curious? Will an arbitrator ever cut salary? I think a qualifying offer is supposed to be 10% over previous year but a guy like Kyle Quincey is already over payed.

    Hope Steeger gets through this quick. I enjoy him and Flash working with Weiss on the first line.
