Good low risk signing with the term and $. Armstrong was the type of player we hated facing when he was with other teams, but we'll like having on our side. Adding another righty and some solid size is always good.

Obviously his health is a huge issue on a team that has been very fragile.

If this Therrien era is going to work, bringing in one of his ''guys'' from PIT was a must. I know Elliotte Friedman was very clear back then on his Team 990 segments that one of the reasons why things collapsed for MT pretty quickly in PIT was the departure of Armstrong in 2008 as he had a key role in the locker room dynamic and the players-head coach link (they went to the Finals that spring after he was dealt, but were mediocre in 2008-09 until MT was fired).

And to troll Toronto fans, for the 2nd time in just over a week with Gally and now Colby, is beyond awesome.
