If the Flames signed him, I don't think it would be with the intent to solve our #1C problem. But I could see him getting spot time with the usual rotation method that we've been accustomed here in Calgary.
You don't want Arnott as your 1st line center. He was really slowing down in the playoffs last year when he was the 3c all season, and that was after he was given a few games off at the end of the season. He's still capable of being a good 3C somewhere, I wish he and Hitch would've gotten along a little better. He still has a good shot and will go to the net.
