Yes. Totally agree. They'll be out in the 2nd or 3rd round.

peaking too early/going out early in the playoffs verses making it to the Western Conference Finals ... are like, the opposite right?

You can't really say, "this team is peaking too early, they are going to bust out of the playoffs early in the Western Conference Finals"

As an aside, thank you for linking to the previous thread, not enough mods do that. it stinks when posters suddenly end up orphaned in the middle of a discussion three years later.

That's a pretty stellar -12 that Boyes is sporting. Plus/minus is a limited stat, but -12 in 21 games sucks just about any way you spin it. Roy has a better pts/game and is playing defensive minutes in Dallas. Boyes, though misused in Buffalo, is sucking from the teet of John Tavares. I'd love to see how many of Boyes' pts that Tavares also had a point on. I bet it's a high percentage.

Yep Also, we obviously need more help (I.E. getting better players or getting more out of the ones we already have) if we are serious about contending

Pretty telling when you consider how bad Buffalo has been on D and the worst +/- on the team is -7 (Marcus and Drew).

The Stars board has referenced some interviews indicating he wants to re-sign there long-term. He makes some sense for the Stars, and fits nicely there where he can play behind a bona fide 1C for the first time since Briere left.

My guess? 5yrs, $22.5m (4.5m cap hit).

Dater suggesting Sacco may be in some trouble soon. What a kick in the nads it'll be when Ruff is coaching ROR.

To be fair to Boyes, it's near impossible to have a good +/- on NYI. Boye's isn't any good though, I'm sure he's benefiting a lot from a good NYI PP.

Yeah, no.

Boyes is basically just there for Tavares to bounce pucks off his stick and into the net. Watched that Islanders game and he's the same guy he was here. He's good enough not to look out of place with talented players but not good enough to create offense by himself with lesser talent.

Nope. There are actually other players on other teams in this league that would fit better than Patrick "I'm from Buffalo" Kane.

I don't want him because he's "from Buffalo" ... I want him because he's a hell of a hockey player.

That's ridiculous, you can never have enough skilled forwards. Kane would be the best forward on this team. You'd be mad not to want him.
