    Could you help me with the potential of Brian Boyle ?

    I think this guy is underrated. The next Eric Lindros ?

    Thanks

    Hes A Boom Or Bust Guy, yes hes underratted.

    I believe he will be an NHL'r . its just a big question on the role he is going to play. And no I dont think his potential is nearly as high as Lindos's.

    From watching him in the beanpot at BC, I think he is gonna be one hell of a player.

    Maybe not the next lindros, but he dominated at BC last year and it should be interesting to see how he does next year. However I'mnot sure how he'll translate it to the AHL/NHL, but he is a good skater for such a big guy, and has a pretty good shot and pass..

    You either never saw Eric Lindros in his prime or forgot about him, because I don't think Boyle will ever get a sniff of Lindros. I do think he'll be a very good NHLer though. Hard to equate what his potential would be.

    It's also possible that he could be moved to defense. He's handled that position quite well, too; playing defense during penalty kills.
