@DarrenDreger:
Veteran free agent Jason Arnott believed to be en route to NYC. Rangers and Arnott exploring mutural interest in signing. #TSN

I am all for it, he is an upgrade over half of our bottom 6.

Interest in Arnott picked up this week with 2 teams heavily involved. Nice add for NYR. He's healthy and adds good depth up the middle.

Confirmed via NHL on the fly. Good signing, will he center the 3rd line? I don't know how good he is on the wing and I don't see him touching the 4th line

Yeah, I think a few of us brought up his name at the beginning of the off-season. I like the move as well.

Interesting move. Is big and can score a bit. I have not seen him play much in the last few years. I hope he still has a lot left in the tank. :)

I am all for this. Solid move. Nice 3rd line center. I brought this up on the boards earlier in the offseason. His leadership and hard nose play will really payoff when they get to the playoffs.

Great addition, especially to the PP. We need that big body in front of the goalie on PP's. Our PP unit has been poor at best and especially on the 5 on 3 opportunities.

Nothing against our Captain Cally, but I'd much rather have Jason standing in front there on PP's. I think that will be his greatest asset, along with winning faceoffs. Great signing!

Deal fell through... he failed his physical

Per Katie Strang via twitter

#NYR Tentative one-year deal between Rangers and Jason Arnott is OFF, source tells ESPN NY. Was not cleared by NYR team doctors -- Katie Strang (@KatieStrangESPN)

wow, I wonder what the problem was. He wasn't suffering from a concussion was he?

He had knee surgery in the off season.. so that could have something to do with it


#NYR Not immediately known what prevented NYR docs from clearing Arnott but was apparently significant enough to nullify deal -- Katie Strang (@KatieStrangESPN)

He had a shoulder injury last year also besides the knee. I was excited to hear the signed him.

Rangers declined to state why Arnott failed his physcial, but word is they are in talks with several other FA's. No names discussed, so I wonder who else they have on their radar. Hopefully somebody a bit faster than Arnott. I was thinking that his lack of speed was going to be the only issue, but he certainly would have helped our PP.

Still sounds as if the Rangers are after somebody else though!

If you think this sucks for us,think of how much it sucks for him!

Wish we tried to keep Zooks. He would be a big improvement on the bottom 2 lines and he could also help the PP.

Wonder who it could be, it's been so long that I forget who else is even still available out there!!! Any ideas?

Arnott would've been perfect the perfect addition, both PP help and veteran leadership... still a bit bummed by this news

Supposedly kicking the tires on Langkow, Morrison, and Dvorak as possible alternatives. I'd take a chance on Langkow, he can still somewhat produce.... pass on the other two though

I'd be looking at Dominic Moore myself, I know his wife just passed away not so long ago but the guy is a fast player who could play anywhere from the second line down and is a really good penalty killer to boot. Plus he's not over the hill, only 32.
