Umm....if you signed him to produce in the short term why did you give him five years? Other players signed this weekend will be able to contribute in the last years of their contract. Why is Arnott the exception?

Nashville has the deepest corps of young defencemen in the league and Vokoun turned 30 yesterday. This team will still be a contender three to five years from now. Why compromise the future for a half-hearted shot at the present. It's not like Nashville are only Arnott away from the Cup. If you're going to backend a contract do it for a player that will give you a real chance. He's not the guy.
