Arnott is not a 2nd line center caliber player, this is ludicrous. Even if he was how do we know he would he sign here?

I'm not a huge fan of JBo but people forgetting he was a mobile offensive dman previous to playing in Calgary and almost all teams trying to get him ufa.
By that logic Horcoff should be judged on the seasons he had before his big contract. This just makes no sense. There's a lot more wrong with this post but the basic premise is so ridiculous i won't bother to waste my time.


Worth more than Smid to non oilers? Very likely.
Proof? What did Bouwmeester do last year that was so muh more impressive? Is 5 more EVstrength points and his ability to ideally play 2nd unit PP worth that many millions more? Is it worth getting a guy who by the stats and eye is a clearly less capable defensive player? I like Bouwmeester and really do feel he's a #2 guy, like Smid, but his contrat is prohibitive and giving up Gagner for him when we have Smid is a very poor idea.
