I have no issues in replacing one of them for someone that brings that extra edge.
With the way White seems to have been tamed as well, we're seeing all those three guys play essentially the same style. We need White to get back to his ''I don't give a crap who you iz, Ima lay the smack down on youz'' attitude. I would have liked to see him more physically involved yesterday. But he's a keeper imo.
Improvement over the other two would be great.
I'm not going to excuse Armstrong on the sandpaper part... He used to hit border line dirty but he used to be much faster.
For Moen though, we know he's tough, we know what he brings. It's been 20 games, I'm pretty sure it will clear itself.
For White it's pretty clear MT told him to lay off.
I'd be wiling to swap Armstrong with someone better... But there's no one else.
People saying things like'' It can't be worse than 10 minutes of Armstrong'' are just delusional haters.
