Well, you had to see this coming a mile away. He just isn't the same player this year and definitely not playing like an NHLer. Maybe he played above his head for most of last season? He had a few lucky goals + 15.6% shooting percentage... it probably wasn't sustainable. He's definitely underachieving this year though.

Have a feeling he's done as a Predator, especially if one of Butler or Boychuk work out. We'll probably see him on waivers in a couple weeks when the conditioning stint is over, or traded for a 7th rounder if we're lucky. If our waiver claim guys fail and Halischuk lights it up, maybe we'll give him another shot.

Do I feel different about the Arnott trade? Not at all. Getting a high 2nd round pick was good enough for me. Halischuk was just icing on the cake. Trading Arnott was addition by subtraction looking back at it.
