Joel Edmundson, who can become a restricted free agent this summer, might end up having to go through the arbitration process.
Edmundson earned $1.05 million in 2017-18 and he's due for a sizable raise after logging 20:44 minutes per game, but GM Doug Armstrong suggested that he isn't looking to give significant pay boosts to his RFAs this summer. "It’s a bad year to be a restricted free agent on a team that doesn’t make the playoffs," Armstrong said, "It’s hard to justify big raises and some of them are going to earn big raises and they’re going to have to go to arbitration to get it because it’s a difficult process to go to ownership and say, ‘Listen, these guys need to triple their money (but) we missed the playoffs.’ Maybe someone else has to tell us that. Maybe we can find a sweet spot that we can do it, but there’s some players that I’ve got a lot of respect for that I have to deal with this summer and I’ll show them the respect they deserve." That kind of statement could just be an early negotiating tactic, but it will be interesting to see what kind of contract Edmundson gets. Apr 22 - 10:52 AM
