now, if we were on the hook for 4.5 mil this next year we'd probably be underwhelmed but kudos to poile for unloading him before he got too bad...

My reference was to Leggy and Erat, however since you mention it Arnott was the softest big man this team has ever had. Sure he had some numbers and offense in spurts he made players on his line less effective. That is the reason Dumont has been in the doghouse. His goals per year dropped due to setting up Arnott. Dumont still had decent points for last two years setting up Arnott. Sully suffered as well especially on the PP Arnott playing down low and Sully on the point.
