He could be a cheap option and he will be worth more than what he is getting paid by the Canucks. 1-1.5 mil for a year to bring in leadership, experience, defensive abilities, a strong face off presence and not to ignore the 34 points he got last year playing for St. Louis.

If we somehow manage to sign both, there will be moves and that makes some other pieces expendable like Raymond, Malhotra, and Higgins (to some extent).
Malholtra has a NTC and signing Arnott does not make Higgins expendable whatsoever. Doing that downgrades your team instead of improving.
