If he's adding to team chemistry and providing a spark in the room or anything good like that in terms of intangibles, it probably cements him as a decent #12/13 forward. But that's it.
Is it just me or does it seem like Armstrong has lost a step? I dont remember him much from toronto or atlanta, but I seem to remember him as a better skater on pittsburgh.
