    Getty Images [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nhl/1423/colby-armstrong"]Colby Armstrong[/URL]‘s days in Toronto are at an end.
    CBC’s Elliotte Friedman reports [URL="https://twitter.com/FriedgeHNIC/status/219092322984534016"]Armstrong will be bought out of the final year of his contract[/URL] by the Maple Leafs and will become a free agent on July 1.
    Armstrong’s final year on his deal came with a $3 million cap hit which means the Leafs will pay out two-thirds of that over the next two years. Paying out $1 million against the cap for the next two seasons to make Armstrong go away was apparently worth it to Toronto.
    Armstrong had been injury-riddled during his two seasons in Toronto missing 32 games two seasons ago and playing in just 29 games this season. Armstrong’s toughness was something GM Brian Burke loved, but he just couldn’t stay healthy enough to be productive. Armstrong, meanwhile, [URL="https://twitter.com/armdog/status/219090548999467008"]tweeted out his thanks to Leafs fans[/URL] for the fun times the past two seasons.

    Forced patriotism is an oxymoron.

    A government leader proclaiming that citizens have to stand proudly for the National Anthem or else they shouldn't be in the country sounds more like a mandated decree from a totalitarian dictator like Kim Jong Un rather than the leader of the Free World.

    Our ability to peacefully protest is a fundamental American right, and any attempt by our government to squash this freedom is what is truly dishonoring the liberty that our Star Spangled Banner symbolizes.
