But the Habs record with Pyatt in or out of our lineup was vastly different. He contributed quality minutes and helped protect leads moving up even onto a top two line late in close games.

When Pyatt played with Moore and Lapierre in the 2010 playoffs, they were an excellent third line and scored some important goals.

Armstrong on the other hand is a useless, low-performance automaton. He should be a spare ideally.
I recall you always had a strong love for Tom Pyatt. Your whole ''our record with Pyatt" shtick is hilarious.

But I don't think he'd have a job here as a ''3rd liner'' and personally content with him not taking a 3rd line spot.

He's far from a Therrien type.
