Two campers come upon an angry bear. The first says, "I'm glad I wore my running shoes." The second says, "you can't outrun the bear." The first says, "I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you."

This is pretty much a no brainer. The kid has skill. Is he a guarentee? No. But the cost of finding out is Lovejoy or another borderline player. He does not need to be a worldbeater right now. If he flames out we lost nothing in the trial. And we are so desperate for wings with skill that it is absolutely a no brainer. As long as Boychuk is no worse than the bottom two or three guys on the roster you keep him and see. The regular season is virtually meaningless anyways. We could win enough to make the playoffs if you put Crosby in goal, Fleury as a wing, and Martin centering Fleury and Niskanen for a third of the year. Perfect time to try a guy like him out.
