Criticism of Boyes is crazy. We can stand to have a couple of reliable but soft players who produce in some way. We have had guys like Belanger and Petrell who did absolutely nothing at a high level. Boyes, Raymond, etc, are better players than at least 4 forwards on the Oilers, which would make them top 9 guys and worth a virtually no risk 1 year deal. There are numerous free agent forwards who would fill in nicely on 1 year deals. This team needs to make the playoffs.

I am also hugely in favor of dealing our 2014 1st to upgrade at LW or C.

I am actually ok with the D. N.Schultz was upgraded by adding Ference and Belov has to be better than Fistric and Peckham. Larsen and Klefbom could be pleasant surprises. Klefbom will be logging 20 minutes a night in the NHL by January, and it will be well earned.
