I'm not talking about free agents Arnott's best season was with Dallas not Nashville don't know why he was included.

And saying the others played in a more offensive friendly system doesn't help your arguments. Peverley scored more goals for Boston in one season than he did his entire career here.
Arnott's 33g as a Pred is a career high. Peverley's 22 goal season was on a team that totaled a whopping 83 points ... his 11 goal season as a Bruin was in 150% of the games he ever played here in a single season. Using AHL development and first year expansion as indicators of if a player was better or worse ... a reach so far Stretch Armstrong would be impressed.

We've had forwards do better as Preds than elsewhere and players who did better after they left. From a team scoring perspective, the Preds have been at the upper and lower end of the spectrum over the past eight seasons. The absolutist comments about Trotz killing offensive talent are patently laughable. Remember, even Hordichuk was a 7 goal scoring machine here.
