A little too rich for my taste but he brings a much needed skillset and frame to the team.

Hope he's an upgrade on Thompson.

Love adding that kind of size. Just like his teammate Stralman, BB had a terrific playoff run. I know he chip in with some occasional offense, and if he brings penalty killing and some faceoff ability, that's great. The only thing I'm worried about is his ability to keep up with some of our speedy forwards. Not sure what line you put Boyle on.

He'll be better on the PK and FO's, which Thompson wasn't.

Eh, I think he upgrades Thompson, and wasn't Thompson getting a bit more?

I REALLY like this one. He can be an absolute beast along the walls and behind the net. And his hands are good enough to pot a few here and there. He doesn't have to be as fast as a Brown...his size and reach is worth at least a stride of a smaller player.
