Boyle to Nashville

Recommended Posts

Good move for Nashville getting some size to replace Watson and some help in front of the net on the PP.  Good job by Shero to get a 2nd for a 4th line rental.  Win win.

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

In fairness, that was a group of fans who made Henrique out to be way more memorable than he really was, due to couple of very timely goals, and the fact that he was one of the better players the Devils had through a series of rough seasons.  He's as ordinary as they come, and starting next season, he's going to be (over)paid pretty handsomely for it for the next five years.  I don't think Shero would've been interested in bringing him back, had he not re-upped with the Ducks.

I do think Shero would have interest in bringing Boyle back on another two-year deal...doesn't mean it's guaranteed to happen, but it won't shock me in the slightest if it does.

Sometimes fan just like a player. It isn't because they're making them out to be something they weren't or remembering things incorrectly and over inflating events. Henrique was a fan favorite not just for what he did in the ice, but also how he embraced the fans, the team, the culture, and living in New Jersey.

No, I definitely get that (fans latching onto a particular player, whether he's a star or not), but the balance of his career here wasn't so special that there should have been much pining for wanting him back (or acting like it was some major travesty that he was traded...some fans were definitely doing that).

Considering his stature within the locker room and in the hearts and minds of the fans, trading him for a substandard return would've been a really tough pill to swallow, and a really hard sell for Shero to approach the fans with.

And luckily he doesn't have to, because a 2nd round pick is an awesome return. Way to go Ray, good one to kick off the trade deadline season with.
