I don't understand why people compare him to the Niskanen acquisition. Niskanen played very well for Dallas before he has a rough season and a half of the following year. But at least he showed he could produce in the NHL. Boychuk has been more like Tangradi, he couldn't earn a spot on the canes over the past 5 years. Niskanen had more points in his rookie season than Boychuk has in his career.

That being said, it's not a bad move. But I'm expecting him to fail as my confidence is shot regarding Shero.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the islanders claimed Granber off waivers and look how well that worked. I'm willing to bet Boychuk will be like Cal O'Reilly.
