The preparation work is getting ready for the 90 minutes each side has to make their case in front of the arbitrator. Comparables of similar NHL players are used as measuring sticks; with the contracts those players have signed used as a major point of discussion. If the player elected arbitration, his side goes first. If the club elected arbitration, its side goes first. Both sides plead their direct case and, after a short recess, rebuttals by both sides are then made and the arbitrator has the material he/she needs to make his or her decision, which must be made within a 48-hour window following the hearing, as per terms of the NHLPA/NHL Collective Bargaining Agreement.
