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
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.
That's so weird..i was looking at the top ufa left after the game and was thinking w should sign arnott or sykora Since he's familiar with ny lol but a bit too much money given. There are also a couple good dmen left..
old, slow, good on faceoffs, better offensively than boyle or halpern. 1 year, i like it.
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.
