What we really need is another solid winger because if Kovalev is injured we have nothing. Ryder can score but has to be fed the puck and Higgins is still young. We need a guy like Samsonov, Daze or Selanne. That would give us 2 solid lines and even if Kovalev or Ryder or whoever goes down then we still have some good scorers left.

Basically, keep Ribeiro and instead of wasting money on Arnott, spend it on a good winger.
For the sake of arguement, Signing Arnott, whether or not he's the guy to target, doesn't have to send Ribs packing. He could conceivably play wing, Arnott could be a big bodied presend on the W, he has experience there. We presume one move leads to the next,but it may not be that way. btw, I have no problem with the names you mention except for Daze who may not play again, and who makes Saku seem like an ironman.
