Doug Armstrong Will Land on his Feet

From Pierre Lebrun, CP via MetroNews,

“It’s just part of the business. I’m viewing this as a great time to teach them how to respond to adversity. I have to be strong at home and go out and get another job and let them know that when you have a setback and you have to stand up and get back on your feet.  That’s what society demands and that’s what we demand of ourselves.”

Armstrong’s deal with the Stars pays him through the 2010-11 season but he doesn’t plan on sitting on the couch. He wants to work.

He’s already been contacted from numerous friends around the league and given his excellent reputation he needn’t worry.

“Someone said when you get let go, because it’s never if but when, just make a list of names of people that called you and that’ll give you a pretty good feeling of what you’ve done,” said Armstrong. “So I’ve got that list and I’m on the third or fourth page now. It means a lot when people around the league reach out to you and show their support.”
