Arnott's attitude? What about it? I have never heard of that before.

Arnott didn't leave St Louis on good terms.

He was upset about being pulled from the playoffs (after an injury slowed him - further - according to coaches).

Riiiiight, you're the Goals Are The Only Thing That Matters Guy! :crazy:

Well Arnott had 6 goals in his last 37 games with St Lou: put THAT in your hookah pipe and smoke it Mustafa! :evil:

(this was due to the fact his icetime decreased as his game devolved in his party-hard old-age...)

And Doan scored 5 more goals in the PLAYOFFS versus Arnott's 1.

Actually a number of NHL GMs are thinking that (prolly cuz they do more than just scan the goals category). :roll:

Doan hits 10 times as often as Arnott and twice as hard, Doan checks/blocks-shots, Arnott doesn't, Doan....

wait a minute... find another teacher or just stick to your Goals Scored stats for all I care!! :twisted:

... but think about WHY Mr Doan is in fact going to get 4 times what Mr Arnott gets.Image

BTW, just curious, is it a coincidence you only slag Christian players (Booth, Luongo, Doan)?

If the Canucks go out and get Arnott, I think they'll have to buyout or waive Malhotra.

That explains it, and with Kesler gone till December http://bit.ly/OJLUiw, I'd rather sign Arnott on a cheap one year deal to help with the Canucks center loss for a few months, possibly longer! :o Rather than try to see how the diminutive Schroeder can hold up, I think that is a little too long of time for a rookie like JS to try to shoulder on for this contender.

That is unless MG acquires something like Matthias(2nd/3rd line center), Ellerby and Petrovic for RL. :look:

If Arnott has a bad attitude, we don't want him on the team. Doan will help, just not enough and he will be a terrible value at ages 38 and 39.
Knowing what MG likes and dislikes, would he even bother talking to Arnott if he has a bad attitude? Is it safe to assume that a NHL GM would know more about players than us, hockey fans?

Arnott started last season well, but got burnt out by about Christmas. If he could repeat last year's pre-Christmas performance, it would fit well with the requirement to cover for Kesler while he is out. After that, Arnott may need a break.

But only if Gillis is satisfied with the attitude check.

... yep it's all about attitude. :mex:

I could see them signing him and waiving him when Kess comes back, depending on the return for Lou.

Here is the million dollar question, "is it important to the success of an NHL franchise to have a good percentage of it's line-up being members of the Christian Faith, i.e. 'having the lord on our side above others'? If not a good percentage, what percentage shall that be and why only the Christian faith? What about, for instance, Sikhs, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, Muslims, Mormons, Buddhists?

To put it in your vernacular: It don't matter none!

However you DO need a good percentage of assholes imesho (ever so).

Personally I think christian assholes are the best because hey you just can't beat that Crusader attitude!

By the way, about half of those on your non-Christian list like to call themselves Christian! :lol:

I would like to see more Jehovah's Witnesses on our team.

I take it you are not a fan of the goal celebration, the win celebration, or any celebration for that matter.

Apparently there's an offer of $1.2 on the table for Arnott to ponder.
