I'm certainly okay with this depending on terms - I can't think of any better depth solutions right now that don't require trading something of significant value.

Kershaw 01-26-2013 05:43 PM

Not a fan of this. The team needs guy who can carry the puck out our own zone like John Mitchell last year. Is Christensen still available?

trueblue9441 01-26-2013 05:43 PM

signed.. 1.6 mil

Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger
Arnott and NYR agree to contract. 1 year. Cap hit around $1.6 -$1.7. Contract being finalized now. Arnott en route to NYC.

McDonagh 01-26-2013 05:43 PM

Dreger says it's done.

Ih8theislanders 01-26-2013 05:43 PM

I'm ok with it, I'm not sure how good he's going to be though. Doesn't matter if it doesn't work out, will only be a one-year deal. Can put the puck it in the net still even though he can't skate. Maybe some PP time and 3rd/4th line shifts. I know he's a natural center but I'm assuming he can play some wing?

Tony D63 01-26-2013 05:43 PM

Honestly I dont like Boyle on the 3rd line. He would help. He scored 17 goals last season

Sm0otHocKeySPeeD 01-26-2013 05:43 PM

Yeah I just heard Neil Smith say this on NHL Network

Bleed Ranger Blue 01-26-2013 05:44 PM

Didnt take too long to panic.

I wouldnt have condoned this a couple weeks ago, but based on what I've seen, whatever.

Fire Sather 01-26-2013 05:44 PM

um, ok that came out of nowhere

great move, need the depth.

I'm sure some will bash it but he is the better than any of our 4th liners.

Killem Dafoe 01-26-2013 05:44 PM

Yup. I'm cool with this. Nice terms, and I've always been a fan of Arnott.

Loffen 01-26-2013 05:45 PM

For 1.7? Man, that's a bit steep.

Kershaw 01-26-2013 05:45 PM

It's official according to NHLN

Swedish Fish 01-26-2013 05:45 PM

I like it.

Muh 01-26-2013 05:45 PM

Just heard this on NHLN, I like it.

True. It is only a year tho.

BrooklynRangersFan 01-26-2013 05:45 PM

He's not fast, but he's big, he's played in big games, he can add some offense - and he's a solid faceoff guy.

Good add at nothing more than a 1 year SPC. Anything better would've required a trade.

Katie Strang ‏@KatieStrangESPN
#NYR Can confirm that Jason Arnott and Rangers have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, as first reported by @DarrenDreger
Knew something like this was coming

Silence Of The Plams 01-26-2013 05:46 PM

Not too bad.

ecemleafs 01-26-2013 05:46 PM

who cares how steep it is for 1 year. we got a ton of cap space right now.

thewaitingisover 01-26-2013 05:46 PM

I'm down. Nice vet, only one year. Would you guys rather have Arnott on the 3rd line or Mike Rupp?

Fire Sather 01-26-2013 05:47 PM

contract is basically meaningless as its only for one year

SixGoalieSystem 01-26-2013 05:47 PM

With Haley not living up to expectations, he would be a decent signing for center depth. Could use his FO ability.

So is that 1.7M or the 1M pro-rated amount over the shorter season?

Rangers Fail 01-26-2013 05:47 PM

I'm OK with this. A bit steep, but only a 1-year deal.

We need bottom 6 depth. If this means that Rupp and Asham won't be in everyday line up, I'm all for it.

Tawnos 01-26-2013 05:47 PM

I've been talking about doing something like this for months and Arnott's name always comes to mind first. I know some guys are going to roll their eyes and say he's done, but I think he can contribute to our bottom-6. Not expecting a ton out of him.

He did put up 17 goals and 34 points (14 on the PP) on 14 minutes of ice time over 72 games last season. Tertiary penalty killer.

We will see if he has anything left in the tank. If not? He rides the pine. No big deal.
