Wilson, Porter file for arbitration

Defenseman Ryan Wilson and forward Kevin Porter have filed for arbitration today, the deadline for players to do so. Club-Elected arbitration deadline is tomorrow, July 6 at 5:00 pm EDT. Based on the history of former Avs who have filed in the past, this move does not bode well for Wilson and Porter. The arbitration hearings will be held in Toronto from July 20 to August 4, 2011. At the conclusion of the individual hearings, the Avalanche will have 48 hours to make their final decision.

In case you're wondering about the process, here's a summary of it courtesy of Hockey Blog:

Arbitrators are only allowed to hand out one to two year deals and their decisions must be made within 48 hours of the hearing. Teams then have 48 hours to accept or decline the arbitrator's decision. If a team has more than one player filing for arbitration, that team has 48 hours from their last player's hearing to decide if they want to accept or decline the arbitrator's decision. If a team declines an arbitrator's decision, the player becomes an unrestricted free agent. Players who have filed for arbitration cannot be given an offer sheet.
