In the spirit of Christmas, this is where you'd like to see a Dickens like vision of what life would be like in Tampa without Dan Boyle.

If you think it's bad now, you haven't seen anything yet.

Lightning Nation at its best.
I'm not trying to be insulting here but I was just wondering something: This team hasn't won a game in almost two weeks so how much worse would it be if Dan Boyle wasn't in the lineup?


And I'm sorry but his -6 is a direct indicator of his play. By way of comparison, Sarich and Pratt are both at +3 right now. No, they don't have the points but obviously the team performs better when they are on the ice then when Boyle and Ranger (also a -6) are out there. I would glady trade Boyle's 22 points for a guy who is going to play defense and help his team. Boyle is just not doing that. Again, I don't think he is the whole problem but I think he is a main cause. His costly mistakes in his own end have cost this team more than his 22 points have helped IMO.

Or personnel changes; why have the same people who can't get the job done on each PP? If it ain't workin', change 'em up!

Does anyone here really think Dan Boyle is on the team for his defensive presence?

Yes, the team has lost - but they're scoring goals. Take Boyle away and the goals stop, too. Then you have no shot at all of winning. At least now there's a shot.

The reason Boyle gets that much time is he's the only dman capable of carrying the puck up the ice or making a good first pass out of the zone. Could that be why basically all the other dmen don't have decent assist totals? He's also the only other dman outside of Ranger that can skate more than average speed. You can't just look at stat totals - be it +/- or points when determining true value to a club.

As for Boyle being a true No.1 dman - in the traditional sense, no, he's not. So in that sense, the TBL are like more than 50% of the clubs in the league. You're not getting a Pronger-type dman anymore.

Boyle is a first pair guy that needs and has always needed a strong complimentary defensive partner. Kuba's a decent No.3/4. Ranger's a 5 at this point and Sarich and Pratt and Richardson are struggling to stay 6/7.

You don't find 50 point defenseman on trees - even if they aren't the best defensive dman on your team. You can't piss someone like that away. Considering their rarity and the fact you're not going to get another one by dealing this one - that IS pissing him away. Unless, of course, you're willing to deal Lecavalier off. But even then, why if a team had a true No.1 (or two if you're the Ducks), give one up?

Obviously we are never going to see eye to eye with this. But I will say this; Kuba has as many assists as Boyle, has two less goals and is a +4. He has 18 less penalty minutes and averages 5 minutes less ice time. I'd be willing to part with Boyle and take my chances with Kuba because he plays much better defense. Dan Boyle's offense is NOT winning games for the Lightning but his total lack of defense is losing games for the Lightning.

- The Tampa Bay Lightning are willing to move winger Vaclav Prospal, a natural centre. He makes $1.9 million, but the word is the Bolts have had several discussions with the Chicago Blackhawks and are close to finding a fit to get a deal done.

As I said in the GDT, Dudley was scouting us last night.

In most cases, I would agree. However, after last night, I cant. I had a great view of the press box, (and nothing on the ice to entertain me a good portion of the evening.) and saw Dudley conversing with Bill Barber a good portion of the evening, and totally ignoring Bobby Clarke and the Philly people. You know what they say about where there is smoke...

I'm just trying to figure out who would be involved from the Hawks end. Duncan Keith is the only guy I would even consider wanting from them on the D side of things. Seems like an odd team to be chatting with unless it is to start dumping salary. Any other opinions???

Oddly enough Jassen Cullimore makes 1.9 million.

Trading or salary dump depends on what Feaster thinks they can do in the 2nd half of the season. I'd prefer a younger, cheaper, guy over Cullimore. This sentimentality of Feaster to re-tread ex-Lightning guys is approaching dementia.

I am sure we could arrange a deal if you were really interested.

Wow, that's a terrific deal in this market. Why on earth would he be available? Maybe that's why he's not.

If he's on the market and I'm Kevin Lowe some major talent would be avaliable to Tampa to make it happen.

Start with a 1rst round pick and one or two prospects I'd say.

Apparently the Canucks have called about Ruslan Fedotenko. What would the Lightning be looking for in return? Any interest in Matt Cooke?

I don't think he's available. Just some people on this board want to see him traded.

No, and that's a fair statement. But, and I know this is anecdotal, I'm watching (late 1st period, right after Montreal goal) Boyle make two terrible passes back to back right near the Bolts goal. They were from a lack of effort or a brain lock or both and put unreal pressure on our shellshocked goaltender. I don't care if Boyle gets outmuscled or even outplayed, but geez, he, of all people, has to keep his head in the game. If he were ONLY killing the team from a purely defensive standpoint, I wouldn't care so much, but he's not.
