    This is disingenuous, because the 50-point "middle 6" player is essentially nonexistent. At a 50-point pace, you're either a top-6 player, or on a short-term deal b/c you're not a 5v5 play driver. Two players in the league last year scored 50+ points and played less than 16:00 - Jumbo and Labanc. Both scored nearly half their points on the PP, and they were on the same line. Labanc had 56 points and the Sharks gave him 1x$1, b/c he's not really a top-6 player.

    And no, paying Boyle $2.75 isn't ok. The Devils traded him. But you can make the argument that what a guy like Boyle provides at $3m and 25 poitns is a lot more beneficial to winning than a guy like Strome at $4m and 50 points, because it can give you an advantage at 5v5 when the 4th line is on and a strong PK, whereas you're getting production, but an overall weak spot in the top 6 otherwise.

    C'mon. Big Game Boyle...

    would love to see Anderson's game improve for him to claim the no.2. That would be a big help to settling everything.

    I think the plan was to play Chytil at 2C until he had a poor camp.
    Wouldn't be surprised to see him up in the near future if he plays well at Hartford and the 2nd line continues to struggle.
