Jesse Spector at the Blueshirts Blog caught up with Brian Boyle today and discussed how he plans on being a different player this season...
“It’s the physical stuff, using my body to protect pucks, or using my body to run over a guy, or fighting a guy - anything I can do to use what I have as an advantage,” Boyle said. “(Size is) what I have that most other guys don’t. If I do everything better - if I’m skating better and I use my size, that brings my whole game up another level, and that’s what I try to work on."
...i thought Boyle was a mild disappointment last year and think he will start the season down in Hartford unless the Rangers need to keep him on the roster due to his salary ($525,000).
...i would much rather see Kennedy, Weise or Byers have that fourth line spot.
Steve Zipay at Blue Notes and Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants have more from today's informal practice.
