Dubinsky didn't bring a lot on the ice over long stretches but was always important in the locker room too.

And Boyle lost that faceoff but stats say he's going to lose that face off at least 4 times out of 10. MIller can't stand there and stare. That's beer league stuff.
Agreed. @RangerBoy, I generally agree with what you're saying and i do agree that if they can get a core asset (I.E. high 2nd rounder, 1st round pick, etc, you do it for Boyle) but pointing out one faceoff and saying that's why we should trade him is absurd.

Hate on Boyle all you want, but let's give credit where it's due. He's very good at faceoffs, especially on a team that really doesn't have many guys who can consistently win them. That goal was completely on Miller. Absolute AHL level boneheaded play. I expect those mistakes from him, but it's why he should be in the A. THose kinds of mistakes are not acceptable in the NHL.
