My only comment about the Arnott is that one thing that did not help the situation was that in the summer before he got traded, one of the local papers went after Arnott when it was suggested that Arnott fathered a child out of wedlock and it took the moral high ground of "IS this the guy to be the example to our kids". The journal had a couple of op-ed pieces on the subject and while now the city of Edmonton might be more open minded and willing to accept a 20 year old unwed superstar leading the team, in the 90's (when I stil lived there) it was not something to advertize and turned some of the more "conservative" fans and media against him.
