    I was a big Knight fan when he was drafted. Thought for sure he would end up as a 25-30 goal scorer in the NHL :oops:.

    There was a mention that his family was at the game and were ecstatic, was hoping for a replay of it. Good for him, he looks engaged and appears to be having fun.

    Okay.... obviously the goals were sweet and clutch.. and I'll probably get **** for saying this... but I think my favorite moment for Coyle last night was when he absolutely treated Panarin like a bratty 5 year old and tossed him aside and took the puck. If anyone has video of this or can make it a gif... that'd be wonderful.

    Mike Rupp was talking about Coyle last night on NHL Tonight.

    They were teammates in Minnesota,during Coyles rookie year and they had nicknamed him" Baby Gronk" do to his Boston roots and his Man-Child strength.

    Coyle's game winner reminded me of Horton's game 7 tip in against the lightning 2011 E.C.F.

    If you watch any of the youtube highlights of his time with the Wild, you will find a guy who can really do it all(score, hit, carry the puck, etc.). Consistency has been the only problem. But when he is on a roll, as he is now, look out. Really perfect timing for the Bruins.

    It mystifies me that he's gotten any kind of a reputation for being "soft," because that sort of play is what's always typified "Good Coyle" in my head. There's a similar play against Duchene from a 4-1 comeback against Colorado a few years ago that always stands out to me:



    It's great to see him getting rewarded with goals, especially since it'll encourage him to keep shooting instead of making some of the inexplicable passes he that he does (which typify "Bad Coyle," in my mind). But goals or no goals, it's when he's using his strength and speed like that that he's at his best.

    Coyle is more like 230 lbs. He is ripped.

    I like Donato's nose for the net, offensive instincts, and shot. He is weak, though, has average speed, loses puck battles, and is mediocre defensively. If he was 20yo I wouldn't worry, but the guy is 23. Time is ticking on the strength/speed thing.

    If you could combine Coyle and Donato's best attributes you'd have a helluva player.

    I kept bringing up his name in trade acquisitions and was shot down. I never knew he was not going be a scorer. I just wanted a bigger 3rd line center that is responsible in both ends. As a 3rd line center if they break even they are doing their job. He is in bonus territory now and one of the best Bruins and may have to move up to the 2nd line and I am totally confident in him. I was always in his corner, even with Donuts scoring in bunches in Minny.

    signed for another year and paid exactly like a 3rd line C should

    Sweeney's best move ever after the Jones trade

    Idk what is true weight is, I'm just going off of what is listed online.

    At 23yr old he still not near his prime though. I think Donato kind of got a bad rap because he was asked to play a style of hockey that really didn't fit his skill set.

    Donato's shot with Coyle would be pretty nasty.

    What a great pick up at the Trade deadline. Hats off to Don for that move.
    It's difficult to say if it turns out right in the long run but we're here to win NOW and Charlie Coyle seems the right player for that.

    Become only the 2nd player in Franchise history (Bergeron 2013) to score the game tying goal under 5 minutes and the OT winner.
    4th player in Franchise history to score game tying goal and OT winner.

    Added him to my History will be Made series for these playoffs

    Actually, 23 yo is in the prime years for a winger. 22-26yo is when they are most productive, on average. Agreed that all is not lost for Donato. Best thing he can do is work out with Coyle in the off season. Donato needs to get stronger, with will make him a tad faster, and better equipped to win board battles. I don't think he will ever be much of a 200' player, though.

    Literally my only good memory of Jimmy Hayes was the time he inexplicably scored that hat trick. Tried to repress the rest. Charlie's game last night on its own tops Jimmy's time with the Bruins hands down haha.

    I am thinking about the way Horton reinvented himself and raised his game when got to the Bruins and am wondering if Coyle will do / is doing the same.
