I thought Boychuk was very fast and played very well for the few games he was here. Seemed to be faster and better than a few of our current players (Spalling, Hali, Yip and Clune). Same with Butler and Mueller! Beck and Bartley seem to have also done very well since coming up.
I just don't get it. Can someone explain why he seems to not want some of these players on the team. Not every player can be a grinder! We HAVE to have some speed and quickness as well.
Beck and Bartley have done well and are playing large roles with the team so...
Boychuk was a lot of flash and nothing else, he was always falling and flailing. Butler did not look great but has gotten better recently, but I would not say he is better than any other forward right now, except maybe Craig Smith, but Butler is not a center. As for Mueller he is a grinder and Spaling is better. Yip and Clune bring toughness and Halischuk is always scratched for not performing. So I don't understand the Trotz hate in this situation.
