Right handed shot, has some size, could be a good pick-up for the bottom 6.

That was yet another atrocious contract that Burke has handed out. Why hasn't he been fired yet?

Armstrong has a bad attitude and a fragile body to go along with his lack of production, and it's probably likely that he'll want more than the average team is willing to offer him for a third-line role. He was vastly overpaid by the Leafs.

He'll go to the Pens for cheap. He never wanted to leave, everybody there likes him, he'd fit right in with all the other cheap shot artists they have. I wouldn't want him with the Wings. Too slow, his shot is below average.

Is this the same Colby Armstrong who hid the fact he was concussed so he would keep his job?
How did that work out?

He did nothing for Toronto to warrant the idea he would be an upgrade to Detroit's bottom six.

Crymson - where do you come up with this stuff?

Quote - It was a tough blow for the popular Armstrong, who posted a message on Twitter after being delivered the news: "Thanks to the leaf nation for the support over the last couple seasons. Although I had tough luck thanks for everything."

Extremely popular with teammates and members of the media, Armstrong did his best to remain upbeat under trying circumstances. The Leafs alternate captain only began to show hints of frustration after returning to full health in the second half of last season and being made a scratch repeatedly by former coach Ron Wilson.

No thanks to Colby. He'll go back to Pittsburgh and play with Crosby and try to restart his career would be my guess.

Armstrong could replace Arron Asham in Pittsburgh's lineup next year.

In other buyout news:

*The Devils appear to be parting ways with Eric Boulton. NJ placed him on unconditional waivers with the purpose of buying him out.
*The Panthers have placed Matt Bradley and Mike Santorelli on unconditional waivers with the intent of buying their contracts out.
*The Stars have bought out Eric Godard. Didn't play a regular season game in the NHL last year. His career may be over.
