Agreed. Cant overpay a guy like that. Whats the most you would give him? Years and money.

Talbot's puck handling skills are refreshing to watch. What a difference it makes on the back end.

The kid is the real deal.

Just finished watching yesterdays game and then today's game. Yesterday we deserved to loose. One note. Can't watch another game on NBC. I'm not getting into it.
Today was a great game. Fun to watch. I just wish we had Prust on this team. You have to give Dorsett so much credit for his heart.
The guy is really small and he'll go against anyone. Teams are not afraid of him. Sestito, the hair puller, said to the Ranger bench, "Which one of you are going to do something about it". We need a legitimate Tough guy.

I was surprised by how angry Tortorella got at Alex Edler after the first goal. I wonder what his reaction would have been to Marc Staal's give away yesterday.

He was probably hoping for a shutout.

I was hoping for the same thing when I saw Falk starting to shove, but that was as far as he'd go. Post definitely wasn't about Boyle's lack of fighting ability specifically, but the whole teams need for someone who will put meatheads like Sestito in his place. Nash even dropped the mitts this year to defend a teammate. Dorsett is a sparkplug, I like him, but we need a heavyweight.

literally, who gives a crap? sestito is going to do that crap no matter who we have on the ice. what i care about is the 5-2 win.

how many times have we lost a game, won a fight, and everyone feels great about it.

And LOL @ people calling Boyle OK on defense.

Boyle is a very good defensive player.

Yeah, I thought it was painfully obvious to anyone that watches the team play. I thought we had moved past the ridiculous devaluing of him as a player.

Good question.

Probably 3 years at a 250K raise.

This is embarassing. Boyle gets so much crap from this fanbase, 99% of it undeserved.

NCAA players don't fight at all, while their juniors counterparts have been going at it for at least 6 years longer.

Yeah, Boyle sucks at fighting, no surprise. But he sticks up for himself and his teammates.

He makes $1.7M per, paid in blood every game. PKs, blocks tons of shots, and isn't bad in the dot either. He's a 4th liner. Cut the dude some friggin slack.

Also, very disappointed that Falk didn't step up and fight either Kassian or Sestito.

I understood the Boyle hate when Torts was overusing him and we'd see him out there when down a goal with a minute to play... But now? He fits his role perfectly. He's a 4th line defensive center who is great on faceoffs and one of our best PKers. That is the role he is in right now, what is there to complain about?

Clearly losing a meaningless fights warrants personal attacks on the guy and pages of bickering. How ridiculous. We win one of the best games of the season. One of our best prospects in years gets a hat trick. All we read about is people arguing about Boyle's fight, then just snowballing into a Boyle thread. Can't even enjoy the win.

I've never seen him so angry at a player. This was without a doubt an extremely meaningful game for a very emotional coach.

Idk if its been discussed yet. Judging by AV's presser I though his responses about the goaltending situation were interesting. I think he's going to go with Cam on Monday and ride the hot hand. We have to get out of this win one, lose one deal. Just wondering if it will light a fire under Hank or piss him off if thats what happens.

I realize Hank hasnt had the goal support that Cam has had, but Cam has just been so calm and solid out there. The team seems to respond so much better when he's in net. Very interesting.

I second that. Isn't your own Kid Dynamite/The baddest man on the planet 5 ft 8 in.
Go fight him in his prime. Even if you was 6 ft 7 inch you would break your neck.

Tortorella was mad Kreider was the one who scored on the Edler turnover. Edler said the puck was bouncing. Tortorella lost his mind because it was Kreider.

Vancouver is a borderline playoff team. You could see that in the summer. Those three California teams are top notch. They will have to fight for a wildcard. No depth. Santorelli was great for them in October. Richardson was good too. Kassian hasn't developed for them. Did the twins and Kesler play yesterday? Kesler has fallen off. Burrows is struggling big time and is in the first year of a long-term deal.
