Pitt and Wash are big teams. NJ is clearly intending to go big up the middle, adding Arnott to Zajac, Zubrus etc.
Arnott is getting old though. The past couple of seasons, he's had to deal with some injuries, the production is beginning to dry up and the skill set is diminishing. This isn't the same 26 year old who helped Jersey win a Stanley Cup. This is a 36 year old who has digressed the past couple of seasons in Nashville. We're witnessing someone who is on the wrong side of 30 and that the contributions he provides will dry up. Remember, everyone lauded the signing of Brian Rolston last year and he stunk up the joint. Not worried about Jersey at all and the whole misconception that size down the middle means you're tougher to play against.
