The Predators are expecting to be without Jason Arnott for a couple games, as he's now sidelined with a minor upper-body injury. Arnott missed out on Saturday's contest against the Ducks. The word is that Arnott is only going to miss the next two games, but who can be sure these days? We are going to have to believe the Predators when they say this.
A week off (or so) for Arnott is not going to help Chris, who has gained in the standings, but it won't be grounds for being dropped this week in the Waiver Draft.
Arnott was not selected in the Sheet pool from Box 2.
