I don't know much of McClement's game, but I liked what I read from this Bleacher Report article:

Quote:
McClement was the centerpiece of a penalty kill that improved from 30th in the league (2010 - 2011 season) to 12th after the 2011 - 2012 year.

His faceoff percentage was a strong 51.3% and McClement was one of the best defensive forwards on the team.
Considering McClement only cost $1.5 million last season (last of a 3-year deal; cap hit $1.45 mil), adding him for between that and $2 mil as a PK expert / 4th line centre would seem like a great fit.

I wonder if Jason Arnott has another year left in him? He looked pretty decent with St. Louis and played on a 1-year contract base $2.5 mil + $375,000 in bonuses. I'd be okay with Dominic Moore as a C defensive specialist, though he doesn't fit well with Talbot and Sestito/Rinaldo as an energy line.
