We do not have a shutdown line, particularly a shutdown C, something like Tim Taylor Torts use to have in TB. Arnott was a step in that direction, Dvorak is not a centre, but he maight do the things Prust used to do, except for fighting, but those guys we've got plenty for now. There should be no panic, unless Torts has hinted to Sather that he signed garbage in offseason.

Should have kept Prust? Sure. Not for 2.5M for 4 years though.

And Arnott was not a step in the right direction as far as completing a shut-down line. He's not a better defensive forward than Boyle. He's not as good as Boyle is on faceoffs either.
