    I gotta say I'm a bit disappointed that the hoffman contract wasn't settled. For one, this waiting on the damn arbitration decision is extremely annoying and doesn't correspond to anything in the CBA which makes it absolute garbage.

    Secondly, our fan base is pretty much the only group that's had to wait through an arb decision in the last few years, and two of them to boot. Everyone has settled, even bernier who got slapped in the face with the initial contract offer.

    Unique situation or not, it's kinda frustrating to be the only team to wait for the arbitrator's decision, which helps explain why we're all on pins and needles when everyone else gets a decision much quicker

    That is a good deal. Melnyk must be grinning right now.

    I thought he'd get a little more tbh. But whatever. Time to prove this wasn't a fluke.

    Sounds a little low, but he should prove himself this year, then we'll see.

    Wow...none of us got that one correct. 1 year, $2M is an absolute steal and another win for the sens management.

    Mad enough to prove something. Frankly, I wouldn't blame him. But if he sulks I guess Neil can tell him "Stow it, fancy-stats, you're making more than me!"

    The two arbitration awards have been extremely favorable to the team. I'm guessing there will be more arbitration hearings next year.

    Why not. It's not show-friends, it's show-business. Seriously, a smaller guy like Hoffman is not going to have a long career, and he's late starting it in the first place. Might as well get as much early/up-front as possible. If that's here, great, but I don't think he'd lose too much sleep if he gets a new address and new team mates a year from now.

    Don't forget, next year he's still an RFA and still arbitration eligible, but he'll have 2 seaons under his belt. If he scores 25+ then he's in line for a very nice raise.

    That said, let's say he got $10 for 3 years (buys 1 UFA year). If he scores 25+ this season he shouldn't have a problem getting 2x$4M, right?

    It's a fair contract. 25 year old rookie has a good year, you don't go and pay him like a player who has done it multiple seasons. Especially with the red flags about his complete game.

    If he does it again he will get paid for sure, whether it's here or somewhere else.
