i'm surprised by the reaction, or maybe i shouldn't be lol.

Belanger had 6 points in 17 games with a 52% face off percentage with the caps. in the playoffs, he had 1 point with a 66% face off percentage. at 32 years of age. and wants $2m.

Boyd had 5 points in 18 games with a 58% face off percentage with the predators. in the playoffs he had 0 points and a -1 but a 56% face off percentage. at 24 years of age. he signed for 650k.

now, belanger has better stats, especially when you include his time in minnesota where he played a lot of top six time there. including powerplay. but boyd is 8 years younger! with a 50+% face off percentage! meaning he'll only get better! plus he costs a fraction on a cap strapped team and hab fans are disappointed.

then again, i've been big on boyd since his time with moose jaw. he is one of the habs players i'm looking forward to seeing grow.
