It’s Arbitration Season

from TSN,

The Colorado Avalanche have elected to take centre Ryan O'Reilly to salary arbitration.

The club had until 5pm et on Sunday to file and has decided to bring the case before a mediator.

O'Reilly made $6.5 million last season in the second year of a back-end-loaded contract.

The deal arose out of an offer sheet O'Reilly signed with the Calgary Flames prior to the lockout-shortened 2012-13 NHL season. The Avalanche decided to match the offer instead of losing O'Reilly's services and as such must now make him a qualifying offer of $6.5 million to retain his rights.

via TSN,

The Winnipeg Jets filed club-elected salary arbitration on restricted free agent Michael Frolik on Sunday.

The club made the decision before the 5pm et deadline on Sunday and decided to go to a mediator.

In his first year with the Jets last season, Frolik scored 15 goals and added 27 assists for 42 points in 81 games.

According to capgeek.com, Frolik made $1.9 million last season with a cap hit of $2.3 million.

If you don't follow CapGeek on Twitter, now would be a good time to do so.

Blackhawks Sign Pair

from CBC,

The Chicago Blackhawks reached agreement with young forward Michael Frolik on a three-year deal and signed unrestricted free agent Sami Lepisto to a one-year pact….

Frolik’s numbers in 2010-11 took a dip from his first two seasons, as he finished with 11 goals and 27 assists in 80 games.

Frolik scored 42 goals in his first two seasons with the Panthers, including 16 power-play markers.

The Kladno, Czech Republic native was selected 10th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by Florida.

The club did not release financial details, although multiple reports suggest it will average to just over $2 million US per year.

Southeast Division Statistical Previews by Position: Forwards

As the new season approaches, I’ll be making an effort to preview the Southeast Division in a slow and steady, comprehensive manner. To kick things off, I thought I’d take a look back at last year’s individual player statistics, updated to reflect this summer’s off-season transactions. (In other words, for example, we’ll group Dustin Byfuglien’s 2009-10 statistics with Chicago alongside his new Atlanta Thrashers teammates and their performances from last year.)

In short, we’ll look at last year’s stats with this year’s rosters, both by division as a whole and by individual teams, broken down by position… Because a look to the recent past can often be a good indicator of what’s to come. (Often… Not always. See: Cheechoo, Jonathan.) And, besides, I don’t know that you’ll find a list like this in too many places (at least I hope you won’t… Cause that would mean I spent too much time on all of this!)

To get things started, we’ll start tonight with the forwards.

Close, But No Cigar

You know that guy who likes to spread made up rumors.  Well, today he answered a few questions people tweeted him.

This one shows off his hockey knowledge…

@exqueezme asks: do you find it surprising that frolic didn’t make the Russian roster?

answer: First off, killer twitter name! The Russians wanted a certain number of KHLers to help give their league credibility.

Maybe someone should tell him Frolic is from the Czech Republic.

Green received 2 minutes for elbowing.

added 11:26pm, via the Twitter of Tarik El-Bashir,

Mike Green on his elbow to Michael Frolik’s head: “I didn’t mean to elbow him. I might have got it up. I thought it was my shoulder.”

If you missed the knee-on-knee hit Green took tonight, you can watch it here.  The knee hit was after the elbow…
