Next, is that indication of upward trajectory or just a relative good year for Arco?
That's the $600 000.00 question Mac T/Ownership is going to pay to find the answer to. Worth the risk IMO because I watched him outperform Nuge in the AHL 2 years ago back when he was 23, no small feat. Arco's scoring pace last year in the AHL was on par with all of the Oilers superstars when they were in the AHL and if he maintained that pace over a full season would of been THE top goal scorer and top point getter by a wide margin in the AHL with no Hall, Eberle, or Schultz to pad his numbers. Late bloomer? Proper development? Flash in the pan? Unsustainable? I want the answer as well.
