Rangers Sign Jason Arnott

TSN reporting that the Rangers have signed the 38 year old veteran center, Jason Arnott, to a one year deal. According to the initial reports Arnott is on his way to New York to finalize the deal which is believed to be a cap hit of around $1.6M.

I actually was advocating for this signing prior to last season and now that it's happened a year later I'm very please. Obviously if the Rangers are going to rely on this guy heavily for offense they are in trouble. But, he's a big body who has been around and has a Cup.

Arnott is a good faceoff man and will likely see power play time, where he will hopefully stand in front of the net and screen the goalie and bang in a few rebounds.

If Arnott can come in, play in the bottom six, win more faceoffs than he loses and get anything more than 25 points this will be a huge help to the Rangers.
