Different scenarios entirely for both players, you can't compare, and even if you did you are including that joke of a Pittsburgh game where he had 4 points, and last night he had two. Those games were both blowouts where almost every forward was on the scoresheet. That should tell you something about those games.

Since the trade:

BJ's 6-3

NYR's 5-3

Who did he have to 'pass' to get there, Boyle? Pyatt?

I liked the kid in the 2006 draft, and was happy to hear that the Rangers had been targeting him as far back as 2010. So far, so good.
Agreed he's been good, I liked him in his draft year too, never thought he'd be anything less than what he is.
