Arbitration Hearings: Samsonov's Case is Tomorrow

Tomorrow, an unbiased person will decide how much Samsonov should be paid, and fans are starting to feel anxious.


The Leafs want to sign a contract for $2.4 million, but Samsonov is proposing a much higher amount of $4.9 million.

$2.4 million may seem like a small sum for a starting goalie, while $4.9 million might be seen as too much for a goalie who has only had one great year. As we mentioned before, the final decision will probably end up somewhere in between.

However, there's a recent update that could completely change the situation.

Samsonov's Agent Speaks Out

Don Meehan, Samsonov's representative, has made a statement before the hearing, adding more intrigue to the situation.

«I really don't know what will happen. I imagine we will meet with the Leafs (one final time before the hearing commences).»

It seems that both the Leafs and Samsonov are going to try to reach an agreement before the hearing starts.

This new development could be a game-changer because neither party wants to deal with the complexities of the arbitration process.
