- Tony DeAngelo – October 20
- Alex Georgiev – October 31
- Ryan Strome – November 5
- Brendan Lemieux – November 6
It is highly unlikely all four make it to an actual arbitration hearing. Given how close these dates are, we might have this go to the wire, especially with DeAngelo. The fun part here is that we will get closure on all four contracts by the first week of November.
The only “guarantees” to return at this point are Georgiev and Lemieux. Both are cheap enough to fit under the cap. DeAngelo is likely to return as well, and even more likely if they move him to left defense.
Expect to hear a lot of rumors, especially as we get closer to these arbitration dates for the NY Rangers. This was supposed to be a wild offseason, but we haven’t seen anything wild yet. Maybe this will move things along.
