If he develops the right tools, yes. Let me explain. I don't think many people predicted Marchant would become an elite shut down center, and make no mistake about it, he was even after he left here. It wasn't because he was big or strong, it was because he was fast as all hell, tenacious, smart, and willing to get his nose dirty when he had to be. The only thing Arcobello seems to be lacking is the same explosive speed. A shut down center doesn't need to be huge, they need to be able to win faceoffs, cover their guys, play smart and do what it takes to win. If Arcobello can win 50% + of his faceoffs at the NHL eventually, I think he could fit the bill.
