Jason Arnott is 37 years old and one would imagine his goal is to sign with a contender. There must be a few NHL clubs at the top of the league who would be interested in a big body who can still score goals.
He didn’t play tough opposition or face difficult zone starts but there appears to be some more miles for Arnott. Would the Oilers have interest? He still takes a lot of faceoffs (50%) and he rolled out 6-8-14 on the PP and 11-9-20 at evens this past season.
Could the Oilers use him? He might clog up center but can also be used on the wing and should the team employ him in the middle then perhaps one of Gagner, Horcoff or Belanger could move to the wing.
He certainly could fill the mentor role and he’s that big body that the Edmonton Oilers feel they badly need for their skill lines.
I know, I know. Unrealistic. Still, nice to ponder.
