press conference quotes. Arnott:

"Nashville was on my radar before FA even began"


The great thing about this signing is it beefs up all the offensive areas we were weak in last year. We aren't losing speed. We are adding size. With Sillinger, Perrault, and Johnson leaving our faceoffs were an area of concern, but Arnott is solid in that area. He goes to the net often, and he is responsible defensively.

Sure he has been inconsistent in the past, and I'm not counting on 70+ points each year. Still, if he can create the room for Kariya and Erat, get back better than Perrault...give us a solid top PP unit....I'll be happy. I want 60 points out of Arnott a year, but I'm hoping Legwand steps up and puts in 60 as well. The true key is to get our wingers to pick up the pace a bit. Harts and Erat should thrive if healthy and on the top 2 lines.

We all were hoping Poile saw the fit here. He did. I'm ecstatic!

The thing I liked the most about that conference call was Arnott/Trotz/Poile's comments about Jason getting a chance to be the go-to-guy, and his desire to be that guy. Lets hope he can be that guy.
