Arbitration Hearings Can Get Nasty

from Vicki Hall of the Calgary Herald,

Barring a last-minute deal on the steps, Jay Feaster will mark his 48th birthday this morning in a downtown Toronto boardroom.

There, the Calgary Flames assistant general manager will argue why defenceman Ian White does not deserve the salary he thinks he deserves.

The conversation will no doubt get critical, with White listening to a laundry list of his negative points — perceived or otherwise.

“If you survey the 30 clubs today, there’s always concern about players having their feelings hurt,” says Feaster, a lawyer by trade. “But if you don’t want your feelings hurt, then let’s negotiate an agreement before this point.

“You really as a club start to understand the player has elected this. The players understand what this is about.”
