Lehner signs for one year per Sabres Twitter.
Now I'm wondering what the Sabres offered Lehner initially if a one year deal is enough to avoid arbitration.

 

Is there some limitation on the term of a deal in this situation (1 or 2 year deals), or is that only after an arbitration award?

 

I like the deal for many reasons, not the least of which is Lehner's pretty clearly betting on himself. I have to think he could have had more guaranteed money based on a prior offer (unless the Sabres all along had only been offering a 1-year deal (seems unlikely)). But taking the 1-year deal means he's confident he is going to have a very good year.

 

Also, Tom Golisano approves of this contract. :ph34r:

Only after an award.   They were free to agree on anything up to eight years.

The limitation on term is 8 years.

Only the arbitration award is limited to 1 or 2 years (& 2 years is only an option if there are at least 2 years left of RFA eligibility; an arbitrated deal won't cut into UFA years).

Girgensons

 

Did he file for arbitration, or is he an RFA?

Didn't file for arbitration but hopefully Girgensons gets a deal soon. Wouldn't mind seeing a cost effective longer term, if he'd go for it

He shouldn't, because he won't get over 2 mill with his stats.

No chance he doesn't sign a deal before the hearing.

Well, it's only 4 days away. What are they waiting for, if a deal is coming? It's almost August.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a messy end to this situation.
