Andrew Cogliano Files for Arbitration

The only Oiler to file for salary arbitration this year is center Andrew Cogliano who will have a hearing sometime between July 20th and August 4th. By filing for arbitration, Cogliano is no longer eligible to receive an offer sheet from another NHL team. Depending on the award, the Oilers may have the option to walk away from the player if they feel that the number is too high. I'm not sure of the exact cut-off (it's based on the increase in the average salary since 2006-07), but it's likely something slightly higher than $1.5M, which means an award of that amount or lower is one that the team is stuck with. If I was Andrew Cogliano, I'd be instructing my agent to figure out what the exact number is, and if the case ends up before an arbitrator, that's exactly how much I'd be asking for.
