Boyle to Nashville

Every team in the league would take a 4th liner with 13 goals. There’s a reason a contender like Nashville wants him. 

Yup. Let's see, he gets paid nothing, he scores more than he should, he's great at face-offs, and he's a great guy by all accounts. Who wouldn't want that guy??

Oh I know, that really wasn't meant to sound as much of a dig at him as it was more my surprise and how unexpected it is that he is putting up those numbers.

1. Boyle was a great Devil on and especially off the ice. Would not be surprised to see him back here next year.

2. I'd call up mcleod and just give him 4th line center duties for the rest of the season.

3. I think it really might be a good year for sellers especially cause every team in the western conference is in the playoff race.....

Good return for Boyle, and although I've had my complaints and gripes about him, I'm sad to see him go.  He definitely overachieved while he was here, and I think he'll be valuable to Nashville in the playoffs.  Good luck to him.  Depending on what else shakes out with our team, I wouldn't be opposed to bringing him back next year, but the circumstances have to be right.

Judging by Mcleod's last cup of coffee with us, HE said he needs to go down , get stronger, & learn pro game. Then again i don't want to keep Gabriel around either.  Lappin? Q? Bastian? Gignac (think he's been having a good year)

Wouldn’t mind seeing Spears come up. He was a tough cut in camp, IRCC..

Now the question is...what is Johansson worth? 

I dunno man, vegetables are pretty expensive in my area.

He's been out/injured & he's having a(nother) bad year fwiw. 

ETA: Best of luck to Boyler!

I think that was actually the 2017 camp...Don't remember him sniffing the roster this year.

Sad to see him go because he's been great, but that's an awesome return. Not to mention (ugh, tampering) that he may very well return as he is UFA on July 1.

Would also love to have him back next year...with the IMPROVED Devils team. Good luck Brian. Enjoy the playoffs.

I feel like we always say stuff like this and it never happens. Weren’t we supposed to get Henrique back also?

Good return. 

I think people will be disappointed with Johansson's return if they think he will match or even exceed Boyle's.

I think there was a quote somewhere from ray telling him in a conversation that they had..something along the lines of " I've been know to bring back players that have played for me in the past"

Not saying it was a bad move for Nashville, I totally get why they did it.

Apparently Nashville was having issues on the PP and wanted a big body in front of the goal.. most were expecting simmonds...  best of luck big guy, he had a few big goals for us...
