Is there a limit to how many games an AHL vet can have on his resume? Besides that, I think both Armstrong and Kostopoulos have one-way deals. In the cap world(and even before it) that'll keep them in the NHL.
Not sure where Armstrong fits, although, over the last 3 years, averaged out over 82 games, it comes out to 50 points a year for him(take it for what it's worth). If Kostopoulos was the 4th line RW next year, that would be fine. He sticks up for his teammates, kills a few penalties, works his butt off. He's only signed for another year, and if that means Kanko gets another year in Manchester, it's not going to kill him.
All these hard working 3rd/4th line guys will allow the young guys to just play. Not forget about the rest of the game, but go out there and use their skill. Hopefully Brown gets at least 2nd line minutes. He had 14 goals in what was essentially his first NHL season. Put him on the PP a little more, he could hit 20. He needs to cut down on the trying-too-hard penalties though.
