We talked about Arsene as a possible option here during the summer. He might be the next Bobby Allen but he could be the next Scott Ferguson. Arsene has over 400 games of pro experience (over 500 if you include playoffs) and tomorrow is his “Don Cherry” moment.
I’m not certain who he’ll be replacing along the blue (Chorney is ailing, Souray may or may not play and Grebeshkov is gone for awhile) and there’s always a chance he’ll be recalled without making it into the lineup.
Which would be a shame.
