Wouldn't mind Boyd as a 4th line C for the Canucks, but AV really, really likes Bolduc and he's actually been pretty good since returning from his injury.
Desbiens is useless as an NHL player. Not really a good scrapper, and while he certainly works hard and tries hard and has decent puckhandling ability, his intelligence, speed, and agility just are not NHL calibre.
Well, time to see if Florida does actually want Boyd or not.
Thats what I was thinking too..but also could depend on how many contracts they have (I believe they have 48 right now). But I could really see them claiming him since they just found out that Stillman has a fracture in his back and is probably out for quite a while.
If it keeps Hordi in street clothes I hope we pick him up
If that's the case, I hope we don't pick up him or another player. Hordi's been fine this season, he's a 4th line grinder willing to go with anyone for his teammates. He's not hurt the play, we have plenty of others who've done that.

would be good for florida to get some depth at the bottom 6. we dont have many good grinders, what we have are offensive guys who just didnt cut it on the top 6, so they're stuck at bottom 6
What do you think you're getting in Boyd? He's exactly the player you describe as already being in your bottom six. He's not awful, but he doesn't really do anything, offensively, defensively, or physically.
