Mike Green D WAS Apr 17 '78

Mike Green declined to file for salary arbitration before last Thursday's deadline.

The Capitals could take Green to arbitration, and the deadline for that is today at 5 p.m. Eastern. But if they do not, the two sides will simply continue to negotiate a new deal. The Capitals have the right to match any outside offer Green might sign. If Washington would opt not to match a deal, the team would receive draft pick compensation based on the average annual value of the contract.
