Not a bad 4th line depth player. Solid veteran and he's well liked in the dressing room.

He can't stay healthy though and has lost a lot of speed and skill due to his injuries.

I'm not sure where he'll land but it won't be for very much.

Such a plug. Prime example for the league as to how Crosby inflates the stats of those around him.

Come back to the Leafs Colby. But we're only giving you 900k this time.

Great guy in the locker room. Hopefully he'll find a job somewhere.

Is just too slow for a permanent NHl job. Good luck to him anyway as he seems to be a great guy.

Armstrong is the type of guy that should be thrilled to get a one way deal under a million just to stay in the league. He's gritty so I still think he gets work just has to be the right price

Don't think I'd call him gritty. He's like a short Hal Gill in forward form. He works hard and is a nice guy. That's about it.

Here's the test he's going to give the market:

1. Do you think I'm still a capable NHL player? Y | N

2. If you answered "Y" to question 1, where do I sign?
