Sounds like Savard back when he joined the Thrashers.

I was thinking this as well. Also, Boston can use a center with offensive upside.

Also, in regards to conditioning, someone mentioned that he was out of shape when he got to Ottawa. Weren't the Blackhawks criticised for a lot of their players being out of shape?

In my opinion Arnason is the very epitome of a stopgap player for a bad team. If a team like Washington were to sign him to add a little bit of skill to their team on the second line (possibly even firstline for a year or two) I see it. But if a team has any kind of designs on going anywhere, and I'm including second tier teams who are hoping to break through like Atlanta, I say stay away from this guy until/unless he has a strong attitude adjustment.

A stopgap player is typically an older player playing way past his prime that you sign for 1 season just to weakly fill a hole in your roster.

Arnason is the epitome of a project player ala Alexandre Daigle. Tons of untapped talent, young, and yet to hit his stride. He just needs the right environment.

That doesn't make any sense. I can understand that sort of thinking if this was baseball, but not in hockey.

Besides, any team can turn their fortunes around if you sign the right kind of players. The Caps have mother flookin' Ovechkin, that puts them a step ahead already. If Backstrom gives them what Cassels, Halpern, and Zubrus couldn't last season then the Caps 1st line and powerplay just became that much more dangerous.

Great talent, lousy head. Maybe some day he'll 'get it'.

He should go to St. Louis and center Keith, form the cheeseburger line.

You joke but that may not be a bad idea.

Considering the FA options, who could St. Louis really get that would A) be affordable and B) mesh with Tkachuk(don't say Weight, they rarely played together and hurt each other production the few times they did). I'll admit that I'm not overly high on Arnason, but he could be a fit for what we need if his asking price isn't too high. I'd certainly rather take a chance on Arnason than put 6 mil into Arnott or Savard or 2 mil into Allison.

I think he has a shot at the U.S. nationals womens team.
he's too soft.
i could see Arnason having modest success as a below average 2nd line center on a horrible team with no chance at success.
its the perfect situation for his style of game.

Arnason should just go on the waivers.
