It is not immediately clear when Arnott, 38, will be evaluated by the Rangers' medical staff. Arnott reportedly underwent arthroscopic knee surgery this past summer after playing through both a knee and shoulder injury last season.

If he does pass the physical, the deal will be worth $1.6 million (pro-rated), with $1.2 million guaranteed, the source said.

Pro-rated cap hit. Arnott will get $1.2M. Haven't seen that before in the NHL. Someone found a loophole.

Torts said the Rangers lacked the players to push other players and the ability to play around with the line-up. He put Stepan on wing last night. Put Arnott in the middle with Richards and Boyle. Those 3 centers. Stepan on the wing.
