Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Ottawa Citizen,
No doubt arbitration is a gamble for both sides and in more than just salary. If Avery’s play falters in the upcoming season, the Rangers will be kicking themselves, especially as they’ll be paying him almost $2 million.
Perhaps the Rangers should suggest to the NHL and its Players’ Association that the arbitration system needs to be revamped in order to make it a less painful process - one in which the clubs don’t come out swinging at their own players and then try to kiss and make up when it’s over. That never helps team spirit, especially when word leaks out as it did in Avery’s case.
