$3.5 mil was a waste a cap space, especially to the pre-Pegula Sabres.
I'd compare it in a similar manner to Olli Jokinen over the past few years. Calgary fans hated him when he was a $5.25 mil cap hit and after playing on a one year deal at half the price he lost most of the bad press. Now its Jets' fans turn to hate on him.
but still if we go the UFA route I'd prefer Arnott.
Not true. He was put into the top-6 out of necessity, and never played bad. In fact, I distinctly remember him playing the greater portion of one year on a 3rd line with Kennedy and Grier, before having to be moved up to our top-6 because our scoring was anemic.
