What’d y’all think?</div></div>

I agree that Rodrigues should get a chance as the 3C but I think he should be with McCann and Hornqvist since I think if Sheary isn't in the top 6 he's useless and I think Zucker should be playing with Malkin

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pharrow</b></div><div>I get what you are saying I just think when dealing with a team and lawyers it's not as bad a "criticism" as you are talking about. They know how to be "pc" about things.
I think those conversations are more comparables than the actual player. That's just my sense. I have never sat in out obviously. But I have negotiated contracts with employees before. And you don't really justify it that way, even though you might be thinking it. There is a real pc aspect to the business world.

Most players don't make it to arbitration for the very reasons you just mentioned. Mainly term. So I don't think it's a huge issue.
Most can usually look at the comparable and figure it out before hand. Which is my sense here. I think the 4.75 price tag is high. That's just me. There are a lot of examples of guys with similar stats making less on many teams. A lot of them on recent contracts.</div></div>

I mean, you would hope they would be pc about such things, but the NHL front offices are mostly incompetent and that's not always how it goes: <a href="https://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/gloves-come-off-during-arbitration/article587254/" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">https://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/gloves-come-off-during-arbitration/article587254/</a>. There's also the infamous story of Mike Milbury making a player cry in his arbitration case. Agents have come out and said they can get angry during arbitration. Like, it happens. "Professionalism" in the NHL really isn't like professionalism in other parts of the business world.

And your point that "most can usually look at the comparable and figure it out before hand" - I think that's exactly what GMs think when a player files for arbitration. "Why does this guy not just look at Kapanen and Rust and realize that's what he's worth instead of wasting our time with this?". There's a lot of ways for it to get antagonistic.

The people who think he's worth 4.75 million are, of course, wrong, no arguments here on that. I think he gets between 3.25 and 3.75 on a three year deal, that deal just isn't with the Sharks.
