Dude, chill out, and let it go. Why are you so vehemently against the poor guy, the hell did he do to you? I don't agree with the decision either, but Jesus, all you ever post about is how Boyle sucks. We get it.
Dude, if you are going to claim that Boyle had a much better career at BC to strengthen an argument it would be courteous of you to not be talking out of your arse. And he doesn't suck.
I like the moves. Gives Miller another shot to impress, Boyler a chance to fight for his spot in the line up, and let's Kreider know he has to be better.
Agreed. Kreider doesn't necessarily "deserve" a benching, but he hasn't done much to impress either, especially compared to the rest of the bottom six. Gotta give Boyler a chance to get back in there before he gets too stale as well. I also like this little nudge in advance of a game that has a serious risk of complacency associated with it.
So you classify yourself as a Boyle Hater than? We are good with that name?
No, I am a Boyle skeptic. I have season tickets and see alot of games without the prism of Sam and Joe, and BB looks alot worse in person than he does on TV with those two emphasizing his good moments and ignoring his bad ones. He's a good 4th line center. I would like him to be used that way; that's pretty much it. My opposition to him entering the lineup tonight is more about fixing what ain't broke. He just happens to be the guy who Torts is using to make the fix.
After reading 89 million comments, many OT, I don't mind seeing Boyle back to see how he reacts to the scratches. Only blemish is scratching Kreider, he needs time and chemistry too. I tend to think many already see him as an established player, when in reality he is only 20 in his rookie season... he too needs development and ice time.
4th line set in stone IMP, Asham and Powe around Halpern... what more can one ask for, two of them Penalty Killers giving the others a rest...
Wonder what it would look like if Gabby, Richards and Nash played on 3 separate lines.
