RSL Wins Arnoux Lottery

This could be a very nice pickup for Jason Kreis. Today striker Cody Arnoux was placed in a weighted lottery and Real Salt Lake came out on top. RSL only had to beat out five other clubs as only Houston, Columbus, Seattle, Portland and Vancouver participated in the lottery with them.

RSL had the forth best odds to win the lottery at only 5.4%.

Arnoux will be a nice pickup for Kreis though as he gets another quality striker. The depth for this club just got deeper really. For a club determined to win the CONCACAF Champions League this year, landing a kid like Arnoux will only help them out in theirĀ pursuitĀ of the CCL title.

Though I do wonder if RSL will try to fit him in under their salary cap. A possible trade could be in the works to get him back to Vancouver considering RSL could have possibly been in this lottery just to land some trade bait.

What do you make of Arnoux going to Salt Lake? Did the rich just get richer? Or will they trade him to the highest bidder?
