Salary arbitration season is underway, as hearings were scheduled to begin on July 20 and extend through August 4. While arbitration awards are very infrequent, with most cases settling beforehand, occasionally a binding decision is handed down by the arbitrator. What goes on behind closed doors before that point? The players, aided by their representation and the NHLPA, and their respective teams, aided by a select group of lawyers, each file at a certain salary over a one- or two-year term. The arbitrator may decide on any salary at or between those two points, based on the arguments in each sides’ written brief and oral presentation. While both sides will have themes to base their arguments on, rather than debate only the merits of the player, the bulk of the conversation in an arbitration hearing instead centers around comparable players. Each side will use a tailored group of statistical ranges, both career and platform year numbers, to show how the player compares to similar recent arbitration-eligible players. All statistics are available to use, but their persuasiveness is the key. The player side will look to show that the player is superior to a group of players at a salary lower than their filing number, while the team side will look to show that player is inferior to a group of players above their filing number. Whoever makes the most convincing argument will land the favorable decision.

Jets could have chance at buyout for Dmitry Kulikov

Jets could have chance at buyout for Dmitry Kulikov The Winnipeg Jets have already lost quite a bit of their talent on their blueline as the team has already lost Tyler Myers, Jacob Trouba and Ben Chiarot this offseason with little in return other than Neal Pionk. However, because Pionk filed for arbitration (along with Andrew Copp) on Friday, the Jets could lose another defenseman off their roster. The Athletic’s Murat Ates (subscription required) points out that Pionk and Copp filing for arbitration opens up a second buyout window for Winnipeg in three weeks, which might suggest that the Jets could consider buying out defenseman Dmitry Kulikov when that happens.

After the Carolina Hurricanes and Brock McGinn settled this morning, just before their scheduled hearing, the Winnipeg Jets’ Andrew Copp became next in line. Ironically, he and McGinn are very similar players with very similar filing number midpoints in their cases. The Jets and Copp are farther apart than were the ’Canes and McGinn, so a hearing is more likely. A possible Copp hearing would be very similar to what a McGinn hearing would have been, including many shared comparable players, now including McGinn. Here is a closer look at his case:

Predators, Sissons avoid arbitration with 7-year deal

Predators, Sissons avoid arbitration with 7-year deal The Nashville Predators and restricted free-agent forward Colton Sissons have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a seven-year, $20-million contract, the team announced on Tuesday. The deal carries an average annual value of about $2.85 million. Sissons, who was scheduled for arbitration on July 26, becomes the 21st player this summer to settle a deal before their meeting date. The 25-year-old tallied a career-high 15 goals and 30 points in 75 games for the Predators last season. Nashville's 50th overall pick at the 2012 NHL Draft, Sissons has recorded 37 goals and 77 points in 265 career contests.

  • Team’s argument: Armia has far better career points per game; Armia had far better per game offensive numbers in platform; similar defensive numbers; Armia creates turnovers, Copp prone to turning puck over
  • Player’s counter: Copp has more experience and more consistent games played; Copp is a center

Scott Laughton (2019)

Career Statistics: 272 games played, 31 goals, 48 assists, 79 points, -24 rating

Platform Statistics: 82 games played, 12 goals, 20 assists, 32 points, -11 rating

Salary: $2.3M

  • Team’s argument: Laughton had better platform season; Laughton is better defensive player – more face-offs, hits, blocked shots, shorthanded ATOI ; Laughton has been more consistent contributor
  • Player’s counter: very similar career offensive totals and per game numbers; Copp is superior goal scorer; Copp has far superior plus/minus; very similar age and size; same position and shot side


This is not an exhaustive list of possible comparable players, but based on the player side and team side filing numbers and the resulting midpoint, this case is dead even. As similar as Copp is to McGinn, his side should be able to make a solid case that he is the better offensive player. In fact, Copp and Laughton are extremely similar offensive players and both sides could wind up using Laughton as a comparable player. That situation would greatly benefit Copp, as Laughton’s $2.3M salary is on his side of the midpoint. Where Copp’s side could fall short is in emphasizing his defensive prowess, as he falls short against most comparable and several teammates. It’s hard to see Copp far surpassing Laughton or falling well below McGinn, so expect him to land a deal in the $2-2.35M range.

Flames, Bennett avoid arbitration with 2-year, $5.1M deal.
The Calgary Flames have signed forward Sam Bennett to a two-year contract with an average annual value of $2.55 million, the club announced Wednesday. Bennett was a restricted free agent and had a salary arbitration hearing scheduled for July 27. He gets a slight raise on his previous pact, which carried a $1.95-million annual cap hit, according to CapFriendly. Bennett signed that two-year agreement in September 2017. "I think that at a young age, everybody wants to be the next superstar," the 23-year-old told Postmedia's Wes Gilbertson on Wednesday. "But sometimes it takes some time and I still think that I have tons to prove.
