Yeah so that post I wrote earlier about the Rangers potential new lines? Yeah, let’s forget that ever happened.

Apparently Jason Arnott failed his physical due to knee issues. He had a knee operation in the summer.

Welp. This is what happens when you sign older players. I wasn’t ecstatic he was coming to the team, but I was definitely cautiously optimistic.

At least the team recognized that they have a depth issue up front and that needs to be addressed. I certainly hope the team makes a signing to help fill the void that would have been filled by Arnott.
