It’s anyone’s guess if a single one of these players will make it to salary arbitration, but 21 players filed for it on Wednesday. The group includes some noteworthy names such as Edmonton Oilers center Sam Gagner and St. Louis Blues winger Chris Stewart.

One interesting wrinkle to consider: a team cannot walk away from an arbitration award under $3.5 million in the new CBA. Teams have mostly avoided the awkward process with their players in recent years, but that change adds even more incentive.

    I always read Eric Condra as Peter Bondra.
    Wishful thinking I suppose.

    Not surprised about Zuccarello. He’s always seemed like he had a contentious relationship with the Rangers management.

    Wow. It didn’t take Winnipeg very long to become THAT team. It’s probably hard enough as it is to attract players to that iceberg town… If you start low-balling your best players now, you’ll have no chance of luring in any big fish.

    Any market for Sam Gagner? He’s got a good situation in Edmonton but his main focus seems to be wanting to become the youngest UFA in league history. Great contract management by the Oilers.

    Interesting to see Zach Bogosian on that list…some people thought he should be picked in the draft before Drew Doughty.
