Now We Wait For A Decision On Tyler Bertuzzi

Under the NHL's new collective bargaining agreement, an arbitrator must decide within 48 hours of the hearing's conclusion. But unlike in years past, the team and the player are no longer permitted to continue negotiating after the session begins.

The arbitrator’s decision will be for a one-year deal, and not necessarily what the team or player submitted; it could be somewhere in between.
