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.
Where did you draw that conclusion from?

McPhee's most successful playoff teams have had IMPACT vets added at the deadline or during the season. I don't see him changing that tactic.
