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.
There is a limit on how many veterans can dress for an AHL game...

What is this "veteran rule" I keep hearing about?

In the AHL, player development is a top priority. Therefore, a limit has been set on the number of "veterans" a team may dress for a game. The AHL considers a "veteran" any player who has played, as of the start of the season, more than 260 regular-season games combined in the AHL, NHL, IHL, or any European elite league.

Teams may dress a maximum of 17 skaters (plus two goaltenders) for a regular-season AHL game. Of these 17 skaters, no more than five may be classified as "veterans."


Kanko plays on the left side...

There will be injuries, the guys in Manchester will get their shots...
