i thnk you miss what mcphee has been saying. he wants his playoff team in training camp. if he wants a veteran for the playoffs, mcphee wants that player on his roster at the start so that he can manage that player the way he wants to for the playoffs and not rely on the team he is buying from.
my read is that mcphee feels like arnott would have been more ready to play in the playoffs had he been on the team all season rather than trying to pull the devils out of a death spin. instead arnott needed knee surgery and was not close to 100% by the playoffs.
so...if mcphee wants a stillman for the playoffs, he is getting him now and not waiting.
