sources: wild's niederreiter files for arbitration


restricted free agent nino niederreiter has filed for arbitration in advance of wednesday's player-elected arbitration deadline, two sources say.negotiations have begun with niederreiter and they can continue through a potential hearing in front of a neutral arbitrator in toronto later this month or early august.the good news with arbitration is it guarantees no holdout. remember, niederreiter's last contract -- three years, $8 million -- wasn't signed until a little before training camp.the wild will be able to choose a one-year or two-year award in arbitration. he's two years from unrestricted free agency, so i'd assume a one-year award makes the most sense since then his contract wouldn't take him right to the brink of potentially leaving. but, maybe i'm mistaken.again, this is very muc
