not what I said or insinuated.

Kreider doesn't kill penalties. He doesn't have to.

We have not missed a beat on the PK w/o Boyle.

What I am saying and have proven is that in the minutes that Kreider plays, the difference between he and Boyle is tracing-paper thin.

The biggest difference that I see is that at least with Kreider and his pedigree, we are more dangerous offensively with him in the line up over a very overrated Boyle.

The team without Boyle is a faster team to play against. A much tougher match up.

The arguments being made for Boyle were made for Betts before his absence was NEVER felt.

Boyle is just like Betts, a dime-a-dozen 4th line PK'er that is overrated by the fan base.
