I think the current need in Edmonton , and the yearning of the media in so many cities is that perfect big body #1-2 line center to build a team around but Arnott was never that guy anywhere he played IMO.
Yeah, I agree. Doesn't seem like much of a what if story, because Doug Weight was the Oilers undisputed number one centerman up until the early 2000s, while we did see what Arnott eventually became in New Jersey and Dallas.
