Boyle is actually 6'7. This is the best he's ever played. There are a lot of Ranger fans who like to rag on him as a 4th liner. They've been a little quiet the last few days. Brian didn't score at all in last year's playoffs--a 1st round exit via Washington but he nonetheless played very well--got lots and lots of ice time--if I remember he was third among our forwards after Gaborik and Dubinsky--Callahan was injured and didn't play.

I respect Carkner but he's not all that good of a player. A lot of people don't know he spend a number of years in the minors--he's really worked for everything that he's got. Tough as nails. I didn't like his attack on Boyle but understood it. He should have stopped wailing on Brian when he was down--that was the ugly part of that episode.
