I expect Boyes to make it to JT's wing, so he should have a great year. But frankly, even on the second line with Nielsen/Bailey OR Nielsen/Grabner or Grabner/Bailey or Strome in some way. He's an offensive player that, in the right situation, can produce offense. He had 55pts two years ago, split between BUF/STL and was a +13, highest of all forwards.

Long Island, the city of second (and third and fourth) chances (Schremp, Tambi, Grabner, Parenteau, Boyes, many more). Where all is forgiven (Nabokov, Visnovsky soon) and patience is tested and re-tested for decades (playoffs? DiPietro).

The stars are aligning for Boyes. It's up to him. He's come to camp in great shape and has said all the right things so far. I think he'll be with players that mesh perfectly with Boyes' skill-set.

I cant put a number on it, but I would say he will be a ppg or a bit better this year....
He's just really good. I think he had 55pts in his last 48 NHL games, to end last year and he's just getting better and better. This could be his breakout year, although I'd say last year he was spectacular, far more than the numbers showed.

He's starting to get recognition around the league. He was 20th in the TSN's list of best players and could have been higher if any of these guys watched him play last year (more than a game or two).
