I would take Boyle over both Ladd & MDC right now. Not bashing MDC he has been solid and considering what we thought of him coming into the season that's a huge step in the right direction. I just think Boyle is an all around better player then MDC right now and how long before Ladd ends up on IR again?

Sorry, flagged this. It was very offensive to me.

A trade could certainly happen that solves the logjam(s), but given how tight-lipped Lou is I'm not banking on anything.

Dal Colle has really played pretty well and I'd hate to see him be sent down but you're right that he needs to be either in the lineup most nights or he needs to be in BPT playing every night. He can't be a regular scratch.

He doesn't look slow to you? He has 1 good shift and 1 bad to me. Maybe I am just biased against the kid but he kinda annoys me.

Boyle has 13 goals which would be 4th on our team. He is a big body you could put in front of the net on the PP. Might be able to win a few faceoffs which we all know this team can use. I'm intrigued by MDC and if they went with him the rest of the way it wouldn't be the end of the world, like I said I just think right now Boyle makes them even stronger but is not a must add IMO

Would be easy to include Fili in the deal for Boyle so Boyle takes Fili's spot but that's not happening. It would be nice for MDC to get some playoff experience.

MDC will never be the fastest skater. I think he has gotten better and it's a process getting comfortable playing at the NHL level.

They are not taking Fillpula or Komarov out of the lineup and they are not going to trade either one in a few weeks. If they add it will be at the expense of MDC & Ladd

Not for nothing but if they add a top 6 player in the next few weeks Beau better get his shat together or he could be the odd man out down the road

I agree Vukota. I see Lou making some sort of deal and a player like Boyle would fit the bill.

I still like Beau as a player but he does need to pick up his play. I do wonder if he would make a better C than wing?

Two goals and two game winners... We may have four points less right now and be tied with the caps and pens...

NMC and NTC for Filppula and he’s not waiving it to go to the Devils nor will he be asked too.

Yep! I'm curious to see what MDC can do with a better center. That will have to wait until next year most likely.

They’ve been participating in practice for a while. Question is whether it’s contact or not? Trotz also said they may get a condiditonig stint in Bridgeport in an interview. Never a fan of Boyle.
- Cptmjl



Why not a fan of Boyle? I think he’s a beast in the playoffs, just not really sure where he fits on this roster..

He is. I didn't say get rid of him, he just might be moved down to the bottom of six if they add a top 6 forward

Just busting your balls but he has been pretty crappy for a while now imo.

Yeah he isn't scoring right now but I still think he does a great job on getting in on the forecheck and working along the boards. Just has to find a way to start burying his chances

Well because he’s a big vagina and the last part in your post. I don’t see the need. Do we need more depth for our bottom six even for a maybe slight improvement? We need help in our top six Boyle would feel like a trade just to make one.

Yes he has. I wouldn’t be surprised if one he is moved down to third line or two traded. If they got a top six forward it’s either him or bailey. And because bailey has a big contract it will be beau

Lately to me he isn’t doing anything out there. Coughing up the puck and out of position far too much imo. He flys around out there but he doesn’t seem to get anything done. Seen this before from him it seems he needs to almost slow his game down a bit.

Bailey may be semi attractive to another team believe it or not. His contract isn’t terrible. I wouldn’t be too upset if he were part of a package for a bigger piece.

He'd make the bottom 6 a hell of a lot deeper. He's got 111 games of playoff experience, which would be welcomed on a team that is old as (frank) but has almost no playoff experience beyond the first round.

Panthers interested in dealing for Bobrovsky as prelude to enticing him to sign what would be an 8-year extension. Brassard would likely be part of package going to Columbus in return, we're told.

Andrew Ladd and Thomas Hickey also returned to Isles practice (full contact), but Trotz said they're "still a ways away." (Indicated Hickey is closer).

Not holding my breath, but I wonder how Columbus would feel about a package involving Bailey for Panarin. Gives them a reasonably priced RW signed long term. Keeps them marginally competitive this year and we'd probably be including a 1st + a prospect to sweeten the deal.
