You can't paint all Russians with the same brush, because no 2 of them are the same.
When have I ever said he was the right piece for Carolina? He would be the right piece for Detroit if he was willing to take less money, but he wouldn't.
How is Armstrong useless?
He is responsible defensively, shows up every night and kills penalities. He can chip in offense but he's been snakebitten so far(numerous very good cahnces and breakaways with nothing yet to show).
you expect your 4t liner to be solid in at least ONE aspect, wether it's forecheck, faceoff, PP or PK specialist, fighting if need be, etc...
Armstrong brings NOTHING of the sort, he isnt a great grinder, doesnt hit that hard, far from great on P.K., doesnt fight, doesnt chip in offensively...
example of 4th liners who are/were doing well (relatively, they're 4th liners afterall), Noke who's solid on FO, Pyatt who was close to perfect defensively, Moen who used to be awesome on the P.K., White who's at least willing to fight, etc
Armstrong ? meh...
