Although NHL owners sought and won a more favorable arbitration process for teams in the collective bargaining agreement, there probably will not be a rush to use their first opportunity to take players to arbitration. "I can't say there will be many, if any, teams taking a player to arbitration this summer because of the unique situation we have here," Mighty Ducks of Anaheim general manager Brian Burke said. "But in the future it could become critical when players are coming out of an entry-level or second contract and they don't file for arbitration." Players have until 5 p.m. ET Wednesday to file for arbitration, and teams have until 5 p.m. Thursday to file.
