I always liked Armstrong. I didn't think he was bad enough to not stay in the NHL. Perhaps some posters are right and he couldn't get a one-way? If not, he could have chosen to settle for more money overseas than on a two-way here, with the possibility of ending up in the minors. I suppose he didn't want to take that chance and got up and left.

I can see him coming back. I still thought he was a decent fourth-liner. He's been injured a lot though and he's nothing like he used to be. Years ago he had a ton of potential but never hit it. Injuries played a big part in it.
