Stopping the opposition is just as important as scoring goals. Did anyone notice that Miller and Kreider were on the bench for long stretches in the 3rd with a lead, or was the euphoria still wearing off by then?
I agree and disagree. I agree that Boyle and Miller/Kreider are different types of players right now.
However, I disagree about trading Boyle. IMO, there is only 1 player on this team that you don't trade, Lundqvist. All others for the right price, I would move.
And along these lines, the one player that could replace Boyle is Halpern and he seems to have fallen within the good graces of Torts.
