Boyd Gordon appreciation thread

Thanks for everything, Boyd.

Going to miss his tireless, aggressive forechecking, faceoff wins, fabulous penalty killing and outstanding work rate.

Good luck to him in Edmonton.

Sniper beat me to the punch, came to post that video. best of luck to Gordon.

I thought about it briefly.

I was just looking up some more stuff from that game, totally forgot Boyd scored in that game too. Such a great game, might be the best I've ever been too.

I'll never forget what a hard-worker Boyd was. I'll also never forget him making us all wince when he took that puck right in the stones against Columbus.

Ditto.

I loved having Boyd (avy check). Seeing his line with Moss and Klink become our best, in a manner of speaking, was a joy to watch solely because I saw it as a reward for his efforts (a reward he wasn't getting by seeing his pucks go in the net).

Great role player that we all cringed when he was first signed. Exceeded expectations and developed into an elite face off/penalty killing forward. He earned a payday. Shocked at the amount but easily understand his leaving and Maloney's decision to pass.

He's great, we just couldn't pay that. We went through this with Fiddler, too. GMDM will find someone younger and cheaper who fills the same role, right?

I think he called Chipchura out for that duty.

Did Gordo win our "Hardest working player" this year?

From a beer league guy who's also known for having no scoring talent, so has to try harder at things like forechecking, PK, defense, and faceoffs, I salute you.

Yeah, Gordon is awesome and I'll really miss him. I've called him the best dedicated 4C in the entire league and I still stand by that; if the Oilers make the playoffs it'll be because of him and Ference making sure their bottom six ain't **** for once.

He is the ideal I use when I play floorball(look it up). Blocking shots, forechecking, digging in the corner and, well, being a black hole in the offense. Can't faceoff for **** though.

Ribeiro will most likely anchor a top line alongside captain Shane Doan with Martin Hanzal, Antoine Vermette and Chipchura rounding out the middle of the ice after the loss of Gordon, who called his time with the Coyotes the best in his career.

"It's going to be tough leaving, a hard decision," he said, "but sometimes opportunities arise and you have to take them."

Bummer Bummer Bummer, had to go all Herman Munster on this outcome. Loved his game, always felt comfortable on PK's and FO's when he was on the. Yotes went from bottom 5 to top 5 in PK% his first year. I wish him well, go get'em El-Gordo!

That right there, is a MAN, playing hockey.

Going to miss watching him play, to be honest. Going to keep my eye on him when Edmonton is our opponent and he's on the ice.
