Also, from what I heard Boyle's a quality skater. Maybe he's not Brady Murray or Jeff Tambellini but lots of other guys aren't either. I still stand by the pick, I just wish he'd be in junior right now, but maybe college is the best place for him. Unfortunately, I think he's one of those guys who will hang in there until he's 22, start to make some waves, and at 25 look awesome.
This is pretty much what I think about it. I've heard some negative comments from BC fans but I'll put my money on the Kings scouting staff over a bunch of college hockey fans any day of the week.

Your crazy if you think Eaves won't be able to make an impact. The only thing that worries me about his game is the number of injuries he has sustained.
