He's proberly worth picking up for the month as he's bound to give it his all trying to pick up a new contract if not for us then elsewhere.

The Matt Greene Penalty Machine picked up speed when it was paired with the Jack Johnson Roaming Machine.

How about a real 4th line center?
We all know our fourth line is an abomination...
Brendan Morrison on waivers(4th line Center) for 2.75 (UFA after this season)
Dude was a 20 goal scorer 50 point player in his prime.
Almost no history of injury. 22 points this season.
This guy is sooo ripe for the taking.
33 years old has a good 3 years left on him :check:
Has top line experience and good hands :check:
Responsible in his own end :check:
Not due for a pay raise :check:
Huge upgrade from Army :check:
Could possibly re-sign for 3 years for nickels and dimes :check:
Good in the dressing room :check:
PK player :check:
Played with OD :check:
Won a cup :check:
A career +52 :CHECK:
Moller Morrison Harry (for the short term)
Would really make the 4th line feel a lot safer.
Really surprised no one wanted to take this guy. He will get picked up and contribute nicely somewhere.

2.75M is way too much for a 4th line center

I like Armstrong there or we could bring up Boyle or Lewis next season.

He's also coming off of knee surgery this past off-season, which is why he has looked terrible with the Ducks this year. His speed is non-existant and he is a UFA at the end of the year.
Next year, I'm sure he'll regain his form again, but he would be of no help to us this year.

What a ludicrous suggestion.
Armstrong is just fine as a 4th line center.

I really like Lewis for the position for next year, and in a couple years I think he will graduate to become our 3rd line center, replacing Handzus.

Armstrong early in the year looked horrible. His plus/minus was awful, and he was not playing nearly as aggressive then as he is now. Since his latest stint on IR though, he has played excellent and I see no reason to change him as 4th line center for the rest of this year.

He's a UFA after this season, get him in the door, sign him up for three years.
We take the remainder of this years salary 2.75 / 82 x 20 = 670k
And work on re-signing him for cheap.
I don't understand why you don't see this guy as a great veteran upgrade for a team thats looking to push to the playoffs next season.
Bad Knees have turned out real good for this team this year. Why not repeat history?
Say 2 mill a year?
I think it is a step backward to put a rookie as your 4th line center.
You can put your beloved Boyle and Lewis on the wings and let them play with a center that is not going to blow a game in the third period.
