My point was, they know how to develop players and that sending someone down or benching them doesn't make it a mistake just because a lot of us disagree with it.

And for what it's worth, i actually think boyle should be in for asham and that kreider should be playing.
I agree. You misinterpreted what i was saying

You mean the part where you reference the other teams that held leads in the third period and how brian boyle doesn't play for them? Yet another hypothetical as those teams are built in specific ways and the rangers are built another.

No clue if boyle would help them stay undefeated or have better track records since it's again, a hypothetical..

The other negative here is that Miller now will have a harder time sticking. He'll now have to be a shutdown player to impress. He sure won't be able to do anything on offense with Brian "hands like feet" Boyle.

1) I'd rather have an OK player who would have 4 points in the last 4 games if his teammates weren't idiots and someone that has potential to be better than OK than a guy that's just mediocre and has no chance to be anything better.

2) Once again, don't remember how Callahan was playing but it wasn't rocket science to bench DZ, they weren't being some genius organization by it.

3) So why are you so strongly arguing? I wouldn't be all that upset if he replaced Asham either.

I've sometimes wondered how our GDTs end up being two part forty page threads when other teams' are like 25 pages total.

I realize now that it's because those teams don't have Brian Boyle.

It's actually The Brian Boyle Skating Extravaganza. There just happens to be a hockey game going on at the same time.

Heard Brian Boyle will take on the entire Islanders team tonight, alone.

Just Boyle on ice, 1 on 5. 60 minutes.

seems like the only thing that this coach is looking for...

where did "safe = death" go?

more like death, by playing safe.

I agree why in the world do break up a winning line up.. I also predicted the islanders fall behind and the game will get very chippy and we will be in big trouble. I don't want to see Giraldi and McD. Fighting

Since Torts realized this team was going to have better success by focusing on a defense first mentality. Some of us like flashy goals, others like winning. i'm part of the latter.

Yep because with Kreider in the lineup, we know he can take on guys better than Girardi and Mcd.

Will Hagelin continue his success? Or has he been just getting lucky?

Holy **** people. I don't think I've ever seen so much hate for one man.
No hate, just responses to those who overrate his skills and role on the team.

He is playing with nash so it helps bigtime for anybody. if callahan/kreider played with nash they would have even more goals IMO

Those two things aren't mutually exclusive. The 00-01 Devils led the league in goals and were pretty fun to watch. Torts wants to win every game 2-1 while being in our zone for 90% of it.

Guys, I am just going to start deleting posts that are not linked at all to this game. It is getting ridiculous. At a certain point I am just going to start infracting people for being so OT.

wait, why is Boyle in for Kreider instead of Miller? I'm guessing Boyle is going to be playing a wing tonight?

Kettle meet pot. You're the one who first insinuated if not outrated stated that Boyle would have made a difference if he had played and no one should be surprised by this move. Yikes.
