Brooks: Kreider, Rangers Appear to Be Headed Towards Arbitration

In a bit of a surprise, Larry Brooks report there is no agreement in sight between Chris Kreider and the Rangers on the eve of his arbitration hearing.

The Rangers and Kreider are only $750,000 per season apart on their arbitration asks, we learned yesterday. The two sides should be able to split that difference without bringing in a third party (which can get ugly), I would think. The trend in the NHL in the past few years has moved away from going through with arbitration hearings.
