Arbitration walk away number for this year
Puck Pedia: The walk-away salary arbitration number for teams this year is the same as last year – $4,538,958. So if the arbitrator awards a salary above that, the team can walk away,
“The # is indexed to increases in average league salary; since avg sal went down 11.6% vs 19-20, walkaway # remained the same.”
Petry and Staal injury notes
Arpon Basu: Montreal Canadiens defenseman Jeff Petry broke his pinky finger and was in a cast of a week. He was told that it required surgery that could have ended his season. He obviously put it off.
Arpon Basu: Petry: “Just the pinky finger went into the glass, turned sideways, and that was it. The eyes were because of when they were setting my finger back into place to put the cast on, I basically passed out and popped all the blood vessels in my eyes.”
Killorn will be good in three-four weeks
