Dumping salary on a team that isn't even near the cap is often times a move to set up a deal involving another team. I don't know what you honestly could have expected to get from an aging Arnott who will probably take second line duties on NJ. We weren't going to get Parise, and Halischuk has the potential to be a pretty good two-way player who can play the PK. Last season indicated we missed guys like Fiddler and Nichol on the PK, and Smithers is going to need some help. I agree that now we need to make a move to land a top six player, but if you expect everything to happen in one day then you're going to be disappointed a lot in life.
