Newsday: Greg Logan reports in the Islanders Newsday blog Sean Bergenheim has avoided arbitration with the club signing a two-year deal worth $1.725 million who will have one more season as a restricted free agent when the contract ends. Bergenheim will make $800,000 this season and $925,000 the following season. Garth Snow comments on the signing.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Another good signing by the general manager, obviously his former agents were a major problem in negotiations. Bergenheim gets another two years to improve his value and the club keeps his negotiating rights when the contract ends.
