Two Canadiens file for salary arbitration, as does Flames forward Joe Colborne, the Canucks re-sign Chris Tanev plus latest on the Oilers.
MONTREAL GAZETTE: P.K. Subban and Lars Eller file for salary arbitration, ensuring both will be under contract when training camp opens in September.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Habs fans shouldn’t panic over this, as few cases end up before an arbiter. Both could end up re-signed well before their arbitration dates. In most cases this is done by the player to set a deadline for a new contract with his team.
CALGARY SUN: Flames forward Joe Colborne filed for salary arbitration. Flames GM Brad Treliving called it part of the process, adding talks with Colborne will continue.
NHLPA: Those on other Canadian teams who filed for arbitration include Ottawa’s Derek Grant, as well as Toronto’s James Reimer (who filed earlier last week) and Cody Franson.
EDMONTON JOURNAL: Notable Oilers RFAs Jeff Petry and Justin Schultz opted not to file for salary arbitration.
VANCOUVER SUN: The Canucks have signed defenseman Chris Tanev to a one-year, $2 million contract.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Tanev wanted to avoid salary arbitration or a long contract standoff. He told the Sun he intends to show he can play as well this coming season as he did last season.
