Postby MarioLives on Sat Jul 27, 2013 1:16 pm

Good man and a decent player. Heading to Sweden

"@armdog: Honestly tho this has been a great journey so far my family and I are so thankful and now making this move to Sweden is so amazing."

A lot more hate than I thought for a guy who gave his all for this franchise. Not that it was that much, but it was a ton of effort and fight. Oh we'll,

It isn't hate...its the facts of life. He was terrible. You can have all the heart you want and still be terrible at what you do.

The "hating" is a good balance from the irrational love he gets from pens fans for a good month and a half on crosby's wing. If he never plays on crosbys wing, no one cares about him. See...Tomas Surovy.

That's really my main motivation. Talbot at least won this franchise a cup. All Armstrong ever did was be funny and have a stupid nose.

What does that have to do with hockey? That's the facts. Rico Fata had heart, but he sucked. Rushel Shell loves his kids, but sucks at being a dad. It is all relevant.

Good luck in Sweden. He didn't look good at all with MTL and had a HC in MT that really knew him and probably wanted him around to tell guys in the locker room exactly what it means to play on a MT team. He just looked really slow and lethargic in the games I saw him in and probably time to take it overseas and make some $$$. Colby obviously wasn't in much or any demand around the NHL.

He's 30 years old and likely has some hockey left in him. Hope he invested wisely before or will now because he sure ain't got a career as a commercial pitchman :D

Dude always showed up against the Flyers and was a big part of what made Sid's rookie year special despite being a bad team. The Cardiac Kids were very entertaining to watch, and for that I'll be thankful for your time as a Penguin, Army. Good luck.

Not gonna hate on @armdog, but I don't see his career lasting more than two years at this point. He looked beyond slow and was unnoticeable last season.

If I had one game of pro experience, I'd be content with my hockey "career". He played the 400 game minimum for his NHL pension and will be more than likely playing until he's 32 or 33. I'm guessing/hoping he was smart enough to put some money back from that overpayment of a Leafs contract.
