I actually liked him with the Isles. Solid 4th line guy.

Wonder if he'll actually pay for St. Louis, or if this is designed to be an AHL deal.

Well, there's the bottom-six center the Blues were supposed to be looking for... waiting for the other shoe to drop now.

Wow, that's it? Would have liked him as a reserve forward, good signing.

Physically too weak to be a solid checking line player. Probably why the Islanders didn't re-sign him.

Presumably he's the 13th forward in STL, and that's the right spot for him because he can be more effective when he doesn't play too much. He can cover on both scoring and checking lines, which is nice to have in the 13th forward, and he can take faceoffs. Good signing.

Why could he never carry over his AHL success into the NHL?

Because he's 5'8", 160.

Don't know much about him at all. Good character guy I assume?

AHL superstar, decent NHL bottom-6er. Small, but real fast with good passing and shooting, and a whole lot of effort and hustle. IMO he'd be a good signing for any team.

Small center (with a looooong stick). Has put up terrific numbers over a lengthy AHL career, but has had very limited success in the NHL. Finally stuck around for a full season in the NHL last year with the Islanders. Depth scoring center who can play an energy (not checking) role in the bottom six if necessary.

Low risk, medium reward i think. Armstrong just keeps making good moves while a lot of other GMs go crazy.

Decent player. Deserves a one-way deal after toiling in the minors for years
