DeBrincat Wants Out

It has been weeks since Alex DeBrincat let the Ottawa Senators know that he won't sign long-term with their team. There has been a major report about DeBrincat's demands, and it changes everything.

If DeBrincat is still in Ottawa today, it's not because of what the other teams offer, but because of the extension negotiations. The player was allowed to talk with teams, but nothing came out of those discussions. However, we know that at least the Ducks and the Islanders are interested.

Next Step: Arbitration



The forward is reportedly looking for a stunning $70.2M eight-year deal, with an AAV of $8.775M. Teams are apparently closer to the $8M range.

If DeBrincat doesn't sign a deal soon, he'll go into an arbitration hearing. He accepted the $9M qualifying offer Dorion made him. That means that the lowest he can get is $7.65M.


We'll keep you updated, but it wouldn't be surprising if there's not much development in this case before August, when the hearings for arbitration begin.
