Recommended Posts

Canucks Needs

Center to fill Kesler void....................Arnott

Bigger tougher grittier.......................Arnott

Veteran with a Ring...........................Arnott

-he's 6'5 and 220 pounds

-i think Arnott still has some gas left in the tank

- hes played in the western conference before

- wants to play for a contender

-There are conflicting reports on the health of Jason Arnott. The Blues are reporting that Arnott has a lower body injury but there are rumors abound that Arnott is not at all happy that he is not being played by coach Ken Hitchcock. Arnott did not practice on Saturday. Stay tuned. (Source: St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

Where is he gonna go when Kesler comes back?

3rd line? Then Pahlsson would be on the 4th, Manny and Lappy would be scratched, and Ebbett and shroeder would sit in the minors.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Booth - Kesler - Arnott

Higgins - Pahlsson - Schroeder

Kassian - Lapierre - Hansen

Not bad.

Arnott 3 or 4 years ago? Perfect fit.

Arnott now? Not so much.

He's 37 and his age is starting to catch up with him. Not to say I wouldn't want him on my team, but I don't know if he has the skill to be a 2nd liner anymore.

He played well in St. Louis on the 3rd line and on the 2nd unit PP last season but Blues play a slower system than we do. Not sure he'd be able to keep up but then again he'd be kn a line with Higgins and Hansen so does his speed really matter? I'd take him as our third line center, worstcase scenario he becomes our fiurth line center and Lappy becomes third, I'm fine with that.

That's terrible, unless their offensive tactic was to mob the net and stuff it every time they come up the ice... there's no passing to speak of with that trio.
