Instead, Armstrong invested considerably in keeping most of the team intact after earning the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. In particular...

Will this be Roman Polak's best offensive season?

Very few hockey players knock on Roman Polak's door. Over the last several years, offense hasn't come knocking either.
