    Johnny Boychuk

    Boychuk has been playing great.

    "Really, NAS?  I hadn't noticed."

    That is exactly what you want from him.  Zero complaints about
    Boychuk this season so far from me.

    I remember some were bent about his contract.  $3.36M to show up
    every game and quietly get the job done.

    I'll agree with you although it appears you don't need others for a conversation.

    He's been very consistent all season.

    4th-6th defenseman in the NHL are like the "referees" in ALL sports. The less you hear of them, the better job they're likely doing.

    Bogie doesn't think so! Thinks the whole team stinks except Hamilton, but he's a rookie.

    Playing with Cedfano doesn't hurt his game either, but he's held up his end of the deal.

    It will be interesting to see what happens to the pairings come playoff time.  Given the present roster make-up, one would think that Seidenberg stays with Hamilton and Boychuk plays with Cedfano.

    I read Cedfano won the Norris trophy once.  Never heard of the guy, hehe.  Personally I do not see the consistency thing with Boychuk, but when the team plays defense (CJs system) he is valuable.  Johnny Rocket, Manchuk, and other superlatives do not cut it, he is a functioning aspect of the machine.

    Boychuk does his job plain and simple, top four minutes and not many mistakes. He's hard on opposing forwards behind the net and catches the odd one with their head down in open ice. You don't hear his name mentioned very much when it comes to d-men having bad games. Also has a great shot...wish he would hit the net more and very durable, tough Edmonton kid.I like him.

    I like johnny as well. Not spectacular.  But steady.  Far less bad pinches and running around.  His shot is a lazer.

    Boychuck is one of the players that Claude counts on, and he is cutting down on mental[ passing] mistakes. NeelyOrr [ quite a name] doesn't appreciate comments on the limitations or mistakes made by this team. Oh well, I calls them like i see them, and i don't like Johnny B taking himself out of the game just to make a big hit. Glad to see Thorny, who I often wish was the 7th player, take care of Reynaldo's flyiing[ off his feet] crunch on Boychuck. Thought the refs allowed a number of Philly's hits, trips etc. to pass without penalty, but , for the most part the Bruins kept away from retaliation. Even Lucic talked Horton down at one point. Smart hockey.

    Nite, let Bogie say what he wants.  He's been a B's fan since Schmidt wore the jersey.

    Re: Johnny Boychuk

    As much as I'd like to agree with Boychuk's play, I don't think Julien has the luxury of pairing Ceddy with Seidenberg come playoff time. That might have more to do with Hamilton than Boychuck, though.

    Re: Johnny Boychuk

    I really like Boychuck as a #4 defender.  Steady.  Well rounded.  I like his intelligence.  He seems to know when to hang back on D and when to jump into the play on offense.

    I wouldnt be against giving him an expanded role on the PP.
