Islanders may invite Radek Martinek and Brad Boyes to camp

per Arthur Staple
https://twitter.com/StapeNewsday

Quote:
#Isles may have a couple familiar veterans in camp next week: D Radek Martinek, who came to camp on tryout in Jan. and signed for 1 year...
Quote:
And possibly Brad Boyes, who signed 1-year deal last summer and was 3rd-leading scorer (10-25-35) last season. Surprisingly still an FA.
Quote:
No indication #Isles will bring another veteran G to camp. Not to start, at least.
I could see Martinek making the team as a #7 guy. Not sure about Boyes, though.

Oh man, I hope the Boyes rumor is untrue. I don't want him having even a slight chance of making the team. Radek is always welcome though, he's always been a good soldier in the Isles jersey.

What's wrong with Boyes?

Boyes is just a favor from a friend (Weight) no room for him on the roster with Bouchard and Regin signings.

Martinek was solid in his time here last season.

He was pretty weak on defense and added no physical play.

I would rather see Brock Nelson or Strome get a nyi roster spot.

There's a reason why Boyes is still a free agent. Despite his gaudy stats, he was terrible last season. He is probably the worst winger Tavares has ever played with.

I am glad to read that. I don't want Boyes back.

You know your soft when Bouchard is brought in to replace you due to a lack of toughness.

It didn't help that his physical game was almost a clone of Moulson, so when you have 2 guys not doing the dirty work it leaves the big guy all on his own. Boyes basically gave me a new found respect for PA Parenteau who at least went into the corners and got his nose dirty

In all reality Boyes should fill the roll of somebody like Michael Ryder, basically play 3rd line/second unit PP so he isn't up against other teams top defensive players and give a team some secondary scoring.

On the plus side give Boyes a little time and open space I think he is very skilled to score or pass(but that being said you don't get that on the first line)

While Boyes isn't a desirable first liner he can at least carry himself in that area.

On any other line he's too liable since he basically has no skills that don't involve being in the offensive zone.

Noooooooooo! Not bad Boyes!
Nobody should have to watch him for more than one season.
He is good at killing the power play though. Please no no no no please!

I never realized how disliked Boyes was. Where'd he go so bad ? I was kind of surprised he's still unsigned. Considering his numbers , I thought he'd have a job...

Just review all other bb threads here in hf and you will have enough of a sample on this guy.
Sending him to the glue factory was one of my favorite reads.

Boyes wasn't let go because of his lack of toughness, he was let go because he was a moron playing hockey. Had little to do with physicality.

Cappy didn't seem to favour Martinek last year so I must admit I'm a little surprised by this, but it could just be as a favour too of course.

Boyes sounded confident before the ufa signing period started.

I would rather he went to camp with another team. I could him signing another cheap, 1 yr deal with Snow.
