You do realize that when you are out there against Crosby, Malkin, Tavares, Giroux that most teams get hemmed in their zone? McDonagh and Staal are defensemen. Just a FYI.



Uh, so you are saying our entire defense is overrated? By this logic the Rangers should trade all of their defensmen and just play 5 forwards. Hank will bail them out. No worries.

Not true. We were hemmed in by every line that the Sens sent out and the Devils as well.

No, I'm saying Brian Boyle is overrated. Everyone benefits from Hank but if you watch you see the plays that McD and others make with their feet and stick. BB makes no such plays; at least not often enough. He is a major reason we get hemmed in because he is so bad with the puck and in battles for the puck.

Halpern has 0 points in 11 games. He scored 40+ points in 2005-2006. Seriously? And in 07-08, and two other times. When has BB done it? Silence is golden.
