  • The most consistent goal scorer in Predators history

  • Was a big part of our best regular season successes in '05-'07
  • Captained the team to the playoffs in '08 after the big firesale.
  • Battled multiple concussions over the last couple years
  • Scored at 40g clip in 2008-09: unheard of for a Predator
  • Quickly forgotten, but really took the team on his back when he came back for injury in 2008-09, almost propelling us into the playoffs

Bye Arnott, thanks for everything, good luck in New Jersey. I'm sad to see him leave.

He played through a lot of pain and was part of one of the best scoring lines we ever had. He had the size/skill combo we never had before.

I understand the reasons for trading him, giving guys like Colin Wilson the opportunity for larger roles. And with all his concussions, I don't think he will play much longer so it's good we got something for him while we could.

Still, sad to see him leave.
