Arnott Will Have To Make A Decision Soon

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

A couple of losses could make it an easier decision. But if the Devils keep winning like they have been, then what will Arnott do?

“We’ve still got a long way to go and I think it will be a little more clear more towards the deadline,” he told me today. “If we win every game from now until the deadline, it’s going to be a real tough decision because then I’ve got to gamble on whether we’re going to win out, win the rest of the season or try to get on a playoff team. As it gets closer, it will become more clear and we’ll see what we do.”

Arnott said he and Lou Lamoriello have talked in theory about him waiving his no-movement clause, but the Devils general manager has not asked him specifically to waive it, yet.

Arnott said the decision is his to make. He is under the impression that Lamoriello will trade him to a contender if he asks him to. That would also allow the Devils to get something for Arnott before he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
