Im ok with this move, depth can't hurt, money's a little steep but for one year who cares.

Does anybody know how he is on face offs?

And imagine we are taking an annual cap hit this year of $7.266.667 for 2 guys not even playing!!! That is pretty insane

I like it. It's just one year and like mentioned above, the cap is 70m.

He won 50.3% of his faceoffs last year.

He went 17-17-34 last year, 1.7 is most certainly not ridiculous. In fact, its kind of fitting.

Don't like the money amount but the rangers didnt exactly give themselves leverage with the way they started this season...and this a move we have been talking about before the season.

I'm still unclear as to why people even care about the amount of money.

Considering salary cap is at $70M and he had 17 goals last year. In this shortened season he will be good enough to help. Rangers are all in to win it this year. Arnott I believe has to help in that department

Guess it cannot hurt. Let's hope he's in shape.

Why is anyone fighting over the money? Whats it to us??? The season has started and its not like we are taking on salary for next year.

You arent James Dolan so chill out. We are still within the cap.

Been saying it for awhile the Rangers should add Arnott for more depth, there really isn't much better that is available right now unless we make a trade. He still has a big shot and can score. He can't really skate but can play 3rd/4th line center or wing position. We could also use his bomb on the PP. Good move.

We needed depth and Arnott is a savvy veteran who can help on faceoffs and maybe even the PP (although that's probably beyond help at this point). And hopefully this signing will motivate players like Boyle to get their ***** in gear since their spots in the lineup are no longer guaranteed.

Very good move. As stated above, he won over 50% of his face-offs and had 17 goals last year.

Question is, who sits for him?

I'm not sure the bottom six needs another big, slow veteran, but I'm more than willing to see what he's got left in the tank.

I still don't get the hate for Boyle at 3C though and I highly, highly doubt that Arnott would be better than him. We shall see though.

One wonders how quickly he'll be in the lineup. It took Redden nearly 6 days to get in. It took Gomez 3 days. I'm wondering if we'll see Arnott before next Thursday's game.

I like this move A LOT. Exactly the kind of presence we need on our third line. Now I just wish that we had kept Fedotenko instead of Asham, even with the extra three-quarters of a mill.

For a team lacking depth, without any cap issues, why would anyone be opposed to this move?

He's big, he can hit, and chip in 15 goals. Great move.

A lot of people called this, so kudos for you guys.

I can't see how it hurts, solid pickup. Should really help boost our team speed.

A big thing this team is missing after losing Dubi/Prust/Fed/Anisimov is a forward group that cycles the puck, protects the puck, and keeps it in the offensive zone. Assuming Arnott is still reasonably effective, he should help there.
