Yeah, Boynton is RH shot too, which is always a plus for a defenseman.

Boynton is the perfect #7 for this team.
Let me tell you a sequence of events from earlier this year when Boynton was paired with Duncan Keith

Keith passes Boynton the puck ,,, Boynton turns over puck leading odd man rush that Keith breaks up

Keith then passes puck up ice ,, Hawks get shot and other team started coming up ice

Boynton goes for hit ,, Misses and leads to a 2 on 1 that again Keith breaks up

Keith is then carrying puck up ice ,,,,,, Boynton takes penalty away from play

That is the level of play we have seen from Boynton this year

He is not a fit for post lockout NHL as he is slow

As for physically he has Diabetes which has to be monitored carefully and thus restricts some of his activities at times.

He is steady if put with the right player, and the Flyer D is deeper then that of Chicago last year and this year so if he does play it will be with better players making it better for him.

Can't argue with adding a player at $500,000 willing to block shots, make some hits, fight if need be to play as the 6th man if there is an injury.

Solid Waiver claim
Absolutely. A good pick up for the stretch run. The price was right. Very solid claim.

From The Hockey News

ASSETS: Has good size and plays a physical game and is reliable when he plays within his limitations. Possesses a hard, accurate point shot.

FLAWS: Has not put up the points expected of him at the NHL level. Is inconsistent in all facets of the game. Also lacks discipline, on and off the ice.

CAREER POTENTIAL: Physical depth defenseman.

Funny we see that from Carle a lot too...

He'll do MUCH better here than in Chitown

Yes, we are happy to rid ourselves of him. Even at $500k it's overpayment.
Will play only if injuries strike, and that too as a 6th Dman with minimal minutes. How good do you have to be a 6th Dman fill-in?

He's plenty good enough for that role, you dont need no superstar for that.

The guy can't be that much of a bag egg, Chicago kept him around as an extra guy last spring. If he is, Pronger will just punch him in the face and steal his pucks in practice.

Difference being that he was paired occasionally in Chi town with Keith, their best DMan. (at least he was in this instance you described)

Here, he'll never be paired with Pronger on the first D pairing. He'll be the 6th Dman on the lowest pairing and will go against 3rd and 4th lines .. and get maybe 5 minutes ice time per game.

He wont have the opportunity to screw anything up. He wont be handed the pilot keys to the 747, at best he'll be a flight attendant who'll spill coffee on a passenger but wont have the chance to crash the plane.

He can't be any worse than O'Donnell in that department.

I like that analogy. We might lose some luggage along the way, too.

Boynton was never issue here in lockerroom. That reputation he didn't deserve because of what happened between him and Panthers head coach

Now that is a great analogy

One thing that should concern you is when he was playing with Leddy ,, Leddy was the one covering for his mistakes

A vet dman who needs a 19 yr old dman to cover for him is worrisome is it not?

The guy who said he is Matt Walker without the contract hit it pretty accurately

Tim P. has a full article now posted which gives insight into the move and assorted information.

http://www.csnphilly.com/02/26/11/Fl...435&feedID=733

Quote:
OTTAWA -- Nick Boynton remembers going back into the NHL Draft in 1999 after failing to sign with Washington, two summers earlier.

He heard the rumors that morning of the draft, ironically, held in Boston.

“I knew the Flyers were interested me, and I can’t remember where they were picking, maybe 22nd,” Boynton told CSNPhilly.com on Saturday.

Yes, they were. The problem was, Boston was picking 21st and took Boynton instead. The Flyers ended up with goalie Max Ouellet

“I knew Philly would probably take me, but I never thought about Boston because I had never spoken to them; that was so long ago,” Boynton said. “Funny how things turn out.”

Can someone succinctly recap why LTIR affects how Boynton's cap hit is pro-rated? Or in this case, not pro-rated?

For a 7th D man...meh. I agree with others...he's no better than Walker, Bartulis or Krajicek...just cheaper...

He has the contract that walker should have had. The Flyers generally loose 2 players each playoff. So homer's not taking any chances. Now if we can get a solid 4th liner that can use his hands to hold a stick instead of punching, we'll be set.

When using LTIR, your banked cap space is eaten up before you dip into the LTIR space, so prorating stops mattering at that point.
