More defensive forward, can handle NHL players better because of his size (didn't look out of place when he was called up last season), win some faceoffs and is a solid PKer.
Arcobello is simply out of his element playing in the NHL, it's blatantly obvious. I'm glad for him that he was able to achieve his dream of playing in the NHL but he's not an NHL player. Arco might be a better AHL player but VV is better equipped to handle the NHL. We're only going to see him for 1 game anyway (i hope) so it's not really a big deal.
