Im curious how Bob Mckenzie or really any hockey insider gets this information before its made official? Like wouldn't the teams themselves want to break the news first?

I believe Lou has something bigger up his sleeve. He will do something

I believe this as well. To do nothing, (a la Snowjob) when the teams' two major weaknesses are SO glaring would be insanity. A gunner/power play specialist is a must.

The deal is Brian Boyle to NSH. NJ gets NSH 2019 2nd round pick in return. Done deal.


I'm OK staying away from him at that price

I don't, unless Lou is willing to trade top prospects which I don't think he will and I can't blame him. If a younger player with term then maybe but how many of those guys are available? I think the summer is where he is going to go all in.

I don't think that's terribly over valued. The preds are going for it, and Boyle has done pretty damn well come playoffs. He could be a difference maker. Now with that said, I don't think hes the missing piece for the isles, but for the preds I think it makes sense.

Boyle is a fourth line winger on a good team. That's a stupid high price to pay for him.

You guys don't need him. RNH will do more for you than Boyle ever could.

Yeah, definitely OK with not giving up a second for Boyle. He could have been somewhat useful, sure, but the bottom six isn't really the biggest area of need, and, while they say he's good in front of the net on the PP, that really only helps the Isles if you believe Anders Lee is the problem with their PP.

Having a player who could shift to center would have been the best thing about getting Boyle -- I probably wouldn't be outraged if they paid the same price for that reason alone, but I'm just as happy to keep the pick and see Boyle go somewhere else.

Jokes aside, what do you think a fair return for Nuge from the Isles would be?

On paper I would agree with you...….but big draws in your d zone late in the game, chipping in a PP goal when it matters in the playoffs, making a big play on the PK. Hes a beast in the post season, and if that 4th line winger scored the game 7 OT winner, he's absolutely worth that 2nd rounder IMO

I mean, on the plus side, he's a center, and if he could share some of that cocaine with Bailey and wake him the hell up, it might be worth it.
