If Macarthur was the only move Murray had made after Alfie left fans would have a right to be upset.

As a complimentary piece it's a very nice signing.

I'm sorry, I'm a bit behind, just finished watching game 1, but I just wanted to say how impressed I was by MacArthur. After Andy and Karl he was easily our best player. He was great at both ends... I kept having to ask myself who's that #16... It was fitting that he set up the winner

I was pretty unimpressed with most of our forwards tonight, but this guy gave at least 2 alfies tonight.

As it turned out this was an amazing signing and I'll gladly eat crow.

The thing that I love about him is that he gives 120% (compared to others on this team) every game despite how bad we have been playing. I don't know if people agree but I would't complain if he got an "A" on his chest next year. He fully deserves it.

He even had the balls to call out the team at one point.

Most of the negativity was a product of Alfredsson walking, moreso than it was about disliking MacArthur or his contract.

Who knows, maybe Alfie's legacy is leaving and allowing Ottawa to sign his replacement for the next 5-7 years. A gritty heart and soul player who is fast, skilled and a 200ft. player. A young version of himself .

I would argue the high-end skill and vision isn't quite at the same level, but the heart and determination is there for sure.

lol, yep.

We need more guys like him who give that 100% effort and also have a decent skill level. Hopefully he keeps it up next season.

Aside from the negativity that was 100% brought on by Alfie leaving, bunch of posters gave excellent scouting reports on what MacArthur could offer like xspyrit, bankstreet, derriko etc...

I see him really excelling under MacLean. I think he can be a dark horse candidate for our top-line.
Yo who's this guy

Oh yeah! Out played is definentely debatable, but at least I was half right haha.

I think he did, Alfie had a good season but he was not very effective 5 on 5.

I've never seen Alfie make a between the leg pass.

I agree Alfie's vision was better. You won't see McArthur put up 50 assists. But the high end skill is very similar.both have similar stick handling and deking ability. Both would usually hit 20-25 goals. Alfie would just have 10-20 more assists.

I was glad to be wrong about this signing.

Give him the C (I'm not even joking).
