Tyler Arnason at the deadline

Just wondering what teams would have to give up for Arnason at the deadline. I'm a Sabres fan and in my opinion the Sabres need a decent center if they're in a secure seed and want to make a good playoff run. With Colorado's mediocre year, it seems that Arnason is struggling, but what would have to be given up to acquire him?

You might get into a bidding war with Ottawa. I heard they liked him last time.



Seriously, a very, very late round pick would be enough.

if the sabres want him, truly want him... 9th round pick might be the steep price they have to pay.

Yeah he's terrible. If they get anything for him, it's a win.

A roll of duct tape so the team can deal with Granato.

I obviously haven't watched enough Avs games. What's so bad about Arnason?

I obviously don't keep track of the Avs since we're out east but I didn't think Arnason was that bad, considering he's behind Sakic and Stastny when they're healthy.

The only reason that a team would want Tyler Arnason is if they have problems with the Oilers. The guy is a brutal hockey player unless he plays Edmonton when he puts up like 2 points a game for the last 3 years.

Considering the Sabres just destroyed Edmonton 10-2, I don't think they need any help in that regard.

I heard he knows a lot about which strip bars are the best and stuff like that.

For those of you who don't know what's so bad about Turdason, check out his icetime vs points this season. It's gotta be worse in the league.

Don't forget shooting percentage.

1 bag of new pucks or 3 bags of used pucks


arnason is completely and utterly useless


I was rooting for his goalless streak to reach his jersey number earlier this season but he got lucky 5 games before it happened

The last team that decided he would make a decent playoff rental didn't even dress him once...

I think the Avs should actually give you a prize if you take Arnason off our hands.

I mean I laughed when I read the title of the thread, and the I lol'd again when I saw it wasn't an Avs fan making this thread.

Arnason for Roy.

Might as well start high since they clearly haven't watched Arnason before.

One of the Top 4 should grab him as Oiler-Insurance.

Seriously, the guy shreds us.
