Arnason Not Qualified

from RDS (translated),
The Senators of Ottawa decided not to make of qualificative offer with Tyler Arnason before the hour limits Monday so that the veteran player of center will be an autonomous player without compensation on July 1. It ordered wages of 1,2 million $ last season and the director general John Muckler stated Monday that it was not worth his wages. “I am sure that it will sign a contract some share. One spoke to put it under contract at less wages but it refused”, explained Muckler.

The Ottawa Senators declined to make a contract qualifying offer to Tyler Arnason before the Monday deadline, making the veteran centre an unrestricted free agent July 1. "I still think he's going to play in the NHL and probably get a contract somewhere else," said Muckler. "We asked him if he'd take a reduction in pay and he refused to do that. "Our assessment was that we could do better in the free agency or trade markets."
