I too like Arnott and hope this move works out. I'm just thinking we should be getting younger.

I've been the biggest Arnott fan my entire life. I grew up idolizing him.

Quite frankly, I don't give a fvck if we gave up too much for him, and I don't give a fvck if he's overpaid. He's my all-time favorite Devil, and he's back. I've got a tear in my eye.

Like the move. Even if he falls out of the plane and breaks his leg, the Devils won't be worse off. I can't see Halischuk being anything more than a body. A second round pick I can take or leave.

I also assume that it won't affect other acquisitions. That is, I imagine what they're going to offer Martin, Kovy is already set, and that Arnott's cap hit takes that into account.

Arnott had a NMC clause too. Just another player who hates playing for Lou and the Devils so much that he chose to do it again. :lol:


Money talks $4.5 M is good deal for Arnott

I really hope that the bringing in of 4.5 mil in salary is a sign that Lou is planning on getting rid of some of the dead weight still on the roster.

This signing can also mean that Lou is holding onto Arnotts 4.5mil for Parise next year.


I like to think of it this way, because that's about the kind of money over a long-term contract that (added to the ~3.3 he is currently making) should lock up Parise for us. So for all those lamenting the fact that this kills our chances for free agents, I would have to side with Lou that this really has no bearing on it as the 4.5 million is already tied up for many years to come it just happens to be on hold this season. In essence the only thing that changes is we won't be able to make any OTHER 1 year signings now :noclue: .

I personally LOVE ... LOVE! this signing. Yes, we get older, yes this reeks of nostalgic motivation, but it also is exactly what we needed. We needed a strong voice of leadership in the locker room, we needed a big bodied center that can play offensive from that position and win some draws regularly, and most of all we needed someone who role was clearly defined as THE 2nd LINE CENTER. If that had been Elias this year (as it most likely would've been) then it's another year of Elias the LW emergancy Center, sometimes RW with the revolving door 3rd line mate and that opens the door to the rest of the line juggling. This really solidifies our scoring lines and give Josefson the chance to ease his way into the lineup by playing on the 3rd line.

Parise-Zajac-Langenbrunner
Elias-Arnott-Clarkson
Rolston-Josefson-Zubrus

The fourth line could really be ANYBODY but I would figure it will most likely feature Pandolfo a cheap good defensive center and some random who is good 2 way player so I think it isn't unreasonable to think this could be it:

Pandolfo-McAmmond-Zharkov

Those are some really nice forwards lines.

The defense ... well that leaves something (or in this case a lot of things) to be desired

Don't worry about the defense Stevens and Dano are lacing them up. We will be fine with Marty as backstop. Where is Mike Peloso? Holik is thinking about a come back.

Hell yeah! This was a really good surprise for this saturday night :yay:

Nice! One of my all-time favorite Devils! Welcome back Jason Arnott! I have always liked him and wish the Devils never traded him. This was a good move and trade for the Devils.


I agree 100% with you brother!

Better than not at all.

While this probably brings the odds down to very, very low, I wouldn't say it's a 100% given that Kovalchuk isn't back. Lou would have to bury Pando and Rolston's contracts, but if there's a GM in this league who can make a bad deal disappear, it's him, isn't it?
