Brian Boyle

Brian Boyle is now a Maple Leaf. He will most likely play with Matt Martin and Nikita Soshnikov on the fourth line and could even possibly play tonight against the Sharks. I think that this is a really good move on Leafs management. Now they have more veteran experience on the ice and in the locker room and they took care a pretty big problem.

I don’t expect Boyle to come here and score like a maniac. In fact, his career high in goals is 21. But I do expect to see more defensive zone faceoff wins and a less panicky approach when the final buzzer is minutes away.

I really hope that he can be the answer in fourth line centre for more than just this season.
