Pick One and Only One
Boyle or Pushkarev, which one do you want?

palffytofrovlov 03-21-2005 07:08 PM

As much as I like Pushy and skill... in the playoffs I would want Boyle more and for that I pick Boyle. I see him in the Primeau mold and we saw he dominated in last years playoffs.

IN the long run, Boyle.

As much as I like Boyle, I want to see him progress a little more before I pick him over Pushkarev.

first impressions, pushkarev was alot flashier than brian at the start of their kings career so i voted for push...and it seems like he's progressing alot faster (leading his calgary team in points) than boyle. but right now, i'm liking brian abit more with the recent development.

What is this Sophie's choice? You might as well have thrown Tambellini in there too. That way, I would be even farther from being able to choose.

I'm glad that I don't have to pick one, because we have them both :eek:

would like to see a line of Parros,Steckel and Boyle in Manchester.
i know, i know who would center that line. details, details. does it matter? really might be a tough line to deal with for anyone.

size is not a measure of potential. if push is everything people are writing him to be, then he may very have the largest potential of all our 2003 picks. it seems as though he has the potential of a datsyuk.

That would be so sweet.
Konstantin is having an OK season in Calgary. From what I've heard, sometimes he's been amazing, other times he had huge lapses and blew defensive assignments. It's part of the process, it's the learning curve. A few months ago he was living in a complete different world, he couldn't speak english. He still has a long way to go, but the kid has all the tools, and he's not afraid to play the body. A guy at the Flames board called him "a Valeri Bure type player who's not afraid to go in the corners". Well, I'd be happy if he'd become this kind of NHLer, a scorer who's not a liability on the ice when your team has not the puck. The Datsyuk comparison is a lot more attractive though...;)
