He's miles better defensively than Boyle (I'd say he's our second best defensive defenseman), almost as good offensively, a better skater at this point, stronger, and less of a bloody puck-hog. I think Demers will have a bounce-back year next season (we have to hold on to him this off-season, unless there's a really good deal, because he has way to much potential to sell-low), and that between him and Burns, we can cover for Boyle.

If you're basing your decision of whether or not to keep a player off this one series, then 90% of the team should be shipped out in the offseason.
