I thought Boyle looked pretty good last night. Sharper and quicker and more aggressive than he has been for much of the year. Then again that has been the problem with Boyle, he hasn't been able to consistently keep up that play.
At any rate, you have to imagine it's him or Pyatt to the fourth line because it doesn't make sense to call up Kreider to play on the 4th line
Don't hold your breath. CK makes one mistake, rides the bench the rest of the game. Meanwhile JT isn't producing anything and is a turnover machine.
Miller is still aggressive and trying to make things happen. His mistakes are a result of trying to do too much. I think Torts has an easier time dealing with that than guys that are passive and indecisive, which is how Kreider looked to me during his stint in the NHL this year. If Kreider keeps skating hard and making things happen like he had been doing recently in Hartford, I think Torts will give him more of a leash, like he has with Miller.
would much rather have haley in the press box than stu but whatever, hopefully kreiders ready to play and torts is ready to let him play, if hes not playing more than 10 minutes a night in an offensive role this is a dumb move.
Haley NEEDS to be on this team...what the heck is wrong with our coaching staff ??? We are TOO soft !!! Haley can skate , hit and agitate and probably would have potted a couple eventually . Geesh...I hate Torts more and more every game and I lump Sather into that too .
I do like Kreider...I agree with that move...but for the sake of God...let the kid play and take his lumps and learn from them . Haley would have been a perfect guy to help this kid on the ice and he could skate with CK better than 3-4 other of our 3/4 line guys can and he would have popped Orpik on that hit without any thought given .
