Friedman reveals arbitration ‘asks’ for Vrana, Red Wings

The Red Wings and Jakub Vrana are relatively far apart in terms of their salary arbitration “asks” ahead of Wednesday’s hearing, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman:

Update: Here’s a bit of context from Detroit Hockey Now’s Kevin Allen:

The $2.05 million difference explains why the two sides are headed toward arbitration. Historically, most cases are settled before they reach an arbitrator. Detroit Hockey Now’s originally projected Vrana’s salary at $4.25 million. If the arbitrator splits the difference between the two proposals, the award would be in the $4.5-$4.7 million range.

Vrana posted 19 goals in 50 games last season, including eight in 11 games with Detroit in 11.  Vrana’s salary was $3.3 million last season.
