If you want Boyle in the lineup it will have to be at the expense of someone other than Asham because the role he plays cannot be played by anyone else on this roster.
And btw, why should there have been a reaction to Cally's injury? He dropped the gloves and his arm dislocated. Nothing dirty involved. You make the weakest arguments I've seen on this board. We were 5 for 5 on the PK against one of the better power plays in the league. So, it seems for one night the PK is fine with the guys who dressed. And historically, Halpern is a better FO guy than Boyle and he is clearly a better player. So, again until someone (other than Asham; he's somewhat of a specialist, especially in the Atlantic Division) earns a spot in the press box, BB sits. In addition, Torts has praised Asham more than once this year for his willingness to drop the gloves to get the team going.
I make the "weakest arguments on this board"? LMFAO
"Asham should be in because...nothing tangible, but...but...you know...uh...guys like him and feel comfortable! And MAYBE he will get into a fight this year!"
Forget...I dunno...tangible ****ing things like...blocked shots, face offs, hits, shots on goal, takeaways, killing penalties, stopping other teams top offensive players from scoring goals, board work...you know...playing hockey!
He wasn't on the ice when Kreider got hit...exactly!! 6 minutes ATOI!
Asham just hasn't gotten into a fight because the rest of the league is cowering in fear at the thought of fighting him!
