Let the countdown(s) begin: NHL releases schedule for salary arbitration hearings

The deadline for players to file for salary arbitration was July 6. As of this moment, 21 players will have their 2010-11 paychecks determined during hearings that will begin on July 20 and extend through August 4. Please keep in mind that these hearings aren’t guaranteed to happen, however, because the two sides can come to an agreement on any kind of contract term before then.

The biggest names include Tampa Bay Lightning breakout player Teddy Purcell (July 20), New York Rangers forwards Brandon Dubinsky (July 21) and Ryan Callahan (July 28), Nashville Predators star defenseman Shea Weber (August 2) and New Jersey Devils forward Zach Parise (August 3).

The PHT staff will provide arbitration hearings of our own on some of the biggest targets as their hearings approach, but until then, check out the full list. (Note: Sergei Kostitsyn was listed on the original release, but the Predators signed him to a one-year, $2.5 million deal to avoid that process today.)
