and it will THEO all over again. We need differnece makers , these are fillers WHO MAYBE THE MISSING INGREDIENT TO A CUP CALIBER TEAM ,not us , we aren`t there yet. By the time we improve , Arnott is done , plus at 31, are we getting his best years , or decline years?
Although I don't agree with much of what you said, I really do agree that spending big bucks for guys such as Arnott and Langenbrunner is a complete waste of resources. These guys have always been good, but are not gamebreakers and I would much rather have Kosts in the lineup next season then paying for such vets. It's Yanick Perrault/Donald Audette all over again with these guys. Sure, they are bigger and more physical, but they can't be counted on to carry this team which is already too full of supporting actors.
