Players like Boulton actually make me want the NHL to ban fighting. That way we'll never have to see players like him waste a roster spot.
Agree totally. Having both Boulton and Carkner in the lineup slows it down a bunch. Also, having Boulton in limits one of the Islanders best strengths, which is the ability to ice four competitive lines. Boulton basically makes the 4th line a non-entity, and a defensive liability due to his lack of speed. Really would have liked to have seen Martinek on D instead of Carkner last night, but, it is what it is.....the boys will hopefully play hard tonight and be up for a tough first round opponent (really any of the top 3 are gonna be a really challenge.)
