MacT is more daft than Tambo if he thinks it'll work out.
When playing in the top 6 Arco was clearly a #2 center last year.

His time in the AHL last year at roughly 2 points a game technically means little in the NHL but when combined with what he has shown to date in the NHL is something Oilers fans should be at the very least cautiously optimistic about.

No one really knows how good Arco can be. He may be our second best player next year behind Hall. Highly unlikely but from his play to date not exactly out of the question either.

I think most teams would leave a roster spot open in their top 9 for what Arco has accomplished to date.
