James Boyd has some serious thinking to do over the next few weeks. Are they Buyers or Sellers? Three weeks ago, they were serious contenders for the East and definitely buyers.

However, over the last 3 weeks, they have been sliding, and now are only 5 points out of the cellar in their own division. They will still make the playoffs, but may not be strong enough to win the East. It seems like their Defence and Goaltending have faltered, and their Offence has slowed down.

The team seems to be not competing hard, and I cant remember the last time one of their known fighters has had a fight. Either they have become complaicant, or not playing for James Boyd.

Graves, Carrick, Cord have to start throwing their weight around, both physically and with fights.

The team doesnt have enough goal scorers or offensive minded players to carry the team if the Defence falters.
