I had thought he would be in the mix but figured he'd be beat out by the likes of Drury and Rafalski so needless to say, I was very excited. He's represented the US more than any other person on that team (9 times) and was the captain of the 05 US WJC team.
As to the topic, I don't think Arnott needs to be stripped of the "C" or traded just to get rid of him. Should the right circumstance come along, sure, but I don't see him fetching the right circumstance imo. I also fully believe that he's respected in the locker room and you can tell by the little side anecdotes that are on the website and on the broadcasts. Maybe that's something that I pick up on because I'm an emotionally attached chick but you'd be able to tell if they didn't respect him.
