Jason Arnott came to the Capitals last year at the 2011 trade deadline from the struggling New Jersey Devils. He did a decent job at bringing experience and throwing in a few points here and there.
That didn't help the well-known underachieving playoff performers in Washington, though.
He just recently signed with the St. Louis Blues. The Blues could be a playoff performer this year, but I do not expect them to make a serious playoff run.
Arnott is being brought in to guide a young and inexperienced team in St. Louis. The Blues will love his style of play.
Although, he will be 37 coming into the season and will most likely slow down the pace. Arnott is usually more than a point every other game player but with this kind of team helping him out, I can see his stats dropping.
Arnott, like any good player, puts up good numbers with good players around him. That isn't the case with the Blues.
Arnott will help the team with his leadership, but I see the Blues missing the playoffs again this season and his numbers dropping with age and lack of talent surrounding him.
