Wideman could go to arbitration
The Bruins could end up going to arbitration with Dennis Wideman after all. It seems the Bruins are unwilling to give Shea Weber money (3.5) for only 1 year of good hockey. While the Bruins would like to sign him long term, they seem to want it to be under 3 million.
With only a 600k cap hit last year, in arbitration, Wideman could get around 1.75 million. If Wideman plays one more year of hockey like last, he could then see the money.
While it isn't the best idea to go to arbitration, in this instance, I would not give Wideman 3+ for 1 good year of hockey. We've seen how deals like that backfire.
