I have no KO hate, I think he's a very good player on a team with not many very good players. Of course he can play on the top line but I think the chemistry with Bailey is better-suited for the NYI. Boyes is a better passer and scorer than Okposo and since Tavares does all the dirty work, forechecking, passing on the first unit, Boyes makes for a better option than KO.

Aucoin is the type of player that both Bailey and KO can learn from. He's smart offensively, responsible defensively, works hard, great passer and those three give the Isles a legitimate threat of a 3rd line that they haven't had in a long time.

Boyes is perfect for that top line. That's why I thought they got him.

I can't believe I'm praising Aucoin after three games, and after I was adamant he should be sent to BP. But he's earning it.
