Yes, Krejci, Bergeron, Eriksson, Smith, Marchand, Kelly, Paille, Bartkowski, Hamilton, Soderberg, Meszaros, and Krug are all heavy weights.

Something's got to give in this one..

We need our key players to show up tonight..
Only game that we didn't play that well was the Ottawa game and we scored 8. I don't know what you want from the team.

Yes, I know. I was disagreeing with the poster who said he's physically useless.

I really think that people who call Boyle soft are very off base and always have been. They see a guy his size and expect him to truck people like Lucic and fight like Chara. The guy came up in the NCAA, fighting is just not his game.

What is his game is wearing down the opponent by finishing every check, solid face-offs, very good and fearless shot blocking and solid defensive zone play. I've always been a fan of Boyle.

The guy finishes every single check that he can. I really am dumbfounded by him being called physically useless. You don't have to murder people with every check, nor do you have the fight them to be a physical presence.

Edit: Did we give him a new contract or did he just leave the NHL and come back on the old contract?
He didn't have a contract to come back on, so we gave him a new one. He rejected a 2-way qo before bolting to Russia.

Amen. Boyle continue to be the most underrated player on the team. He's having a really good season!

Well, for one... It's an actual rivalry. Not like Panthers - Canadiens, Blues - Avs or something. I've seen the weirdest games on this 'rivalry night BS'

One thing is for sure....you play Carcillo tonight. Look, Dorset has been playing great but after seeing what Carbomb did to Wayne Simmonds last game...you gotta play him and get him mins. This is going to be a highly emotional game and we need all of our highly emotional players. Hope Angry Nash and Ornery Zuccarello are in he lineup too.

I'd love to have Haley for this game too.

Agree with you except for the last part...just play our system..."they can't hit us if they can't catch us" -Herb brooks

What a bizarre year. This is the last 4 point game of the season (unless we win a bunch and Montreal completely tanks) and there are 8 games after it.

Maybe not the most important but the most impactful with the exception of the columbus game.

If we lose, it's almost a sure thing that we'd play Philidelphia with a seeded finish. If we win, our odds of a seeded finish go up, and we substantially improve the chances of Columbus or Washington to take over that #3 spot.

Last game, Simmonds scored and had an assist. I'd prefer something different...

I can admit boyle has been playing very well as of late. I still disagree on the hitting part, though. He finishes his checks, sure. But not anywhere near he should be for his size and thats what really Irks me.

It's amazing that bigger players are expected to do so much just because of their size. Take the guys for what they are and determine whether they are worth having around or not. Boyle finishes checks and there's not many guys on this team who do that. Not only that, but Boyle has proven that he's a very good playoff player and that is gold.

Very important, pivotal game on many levels. We could be looking at a preview of the first round for one. Philly exploiting a considerable physical edge against this Ranger team is almost certain for another. That should be obvious quickly. Philly will try to take away space and beat the Rangers up along the boards, the corners and in front of the net. I expect this to be in your face relentless. Hartnell & Co. will remind all of us why we hate them so much.

It will be interesting to see if the Rangers can counter with their speed & skill. It's been done to death, but sick or well, MSL simply has to be a factor tonight.

The long running argument on this board about how a true cup contender need be balanced (physical play vs skill play) will never be more apparent than tonight I suspect.

and Boyle sticks up for teammates although has to be the worst fighter for his size.. dont give me that crap that he came out of college program.. that is just an excuse. George Parros also came out of the college program...

Not Eric Lindros = physically useless.

Boyle puts in the effort every night, go hate on the guys that disappear and make like 5 times as much as him.

Some people are just poor fighters. Boyle's more effective doing other things, and I'd right he not just fight because he's 6-7.
