Since the 2004-05 National Hockey League lockout, player salaries have undergone significant changes. This has had a significant impact on salary arbitration. A review of the NHL Collective Bargaining Agreement, the trends in arbitration filings, and all arbitration decisions since 2001 yields a comprehensive understanding of the many factors that apply to NHL salary arbitration. Additional insight is provided by a current front office member of an NHL team. The analysis results in an assessment of how the process works, how it does not work and how these problems can be resolved.
