IMO, what's the point? I'd rather a draft pick.

Think we all would, but at least we're getting something for Arnott who was pretty much going to leave and is a much heavier cap hit. Steckel is not an upgrade, but he could fit in here. He's inexpensive and works hard.

Im not crazy about the deal, but I don't hate it.

I'm sure he's livid though lol

Steckel has two years remaining on his contract after this year with a cap hit of $1.1M and will go UFA in 2013.

He's 6-foot-5, 222 lbs., shoots left and was a 2001 1st-round pick (30th overall) for the Kings. His numbers for the past four years (GP, G, A, P, +/-):

2007-08: 67 5 7 12 +1

2008-09: 76 8 11 19 +2

2009-10: 79 5 11 16 +4

2010-11: 57 5 6 11 -3

Other than the stat sheet and Cap Geek stuff, I know absolutely nothing about the guy.
