He could have signed him two years ago. The fact is Leafs have zero character, if you think about it and besides the weak goaltending they got that really hurt them down the stretch. No guys that want to make it hard for the other team, team that successfull need guys that want to piss the other team off with there skill and than top it off with knocking them down. Its not all about skill in this league. The leaf grinders like Rosehill are useless and not even close to what guys like Cooke or Avery should i say offer to a team. Armstrong started the first couple games of the seasonw well and with injuries became quite useless, and he is the only guy that when he want playing at a higher level can be thrown in the mix of toughness, character and skill. Its funny this is what Burke MO is but yet they have the most mellow team on planet earth.
