    In DD's world every prospect in the Metro other than ours are the real deal. If Blackwood was a Flyer he'd be the second coming of Patrick Roy.

    It’s so bizarre to me how certain people seem to get off on being a shameless, relentless contrarian.

    ESPN’s NHL coverage is garbage. That is tradition.

    Hart has an excellent resume and is undoubtedly an excellent prospect. Of course he needs to play some NHL games before he can be evaluated as an NHL goalie.

    The two don’t belong in the same sentence. Talk about apples and oranges.

    But it doesn’t surprise me that you would imply they should be compared.

    As a prospect? Of course, Kinkaid is 29. This season? Definitely not. Hart has never played an NHL game and there is still no guarantee he even sticks with the team. That the Flyers are having to even consider going with a 20 year old rookie as their starter right now speaks volumes about their goaltending situation.

    I do like Greg Wyshynski even if he is annoying sometimes, and will never ever shut up about his new favorite team in the Vegas Golden Dawn.

    If one of the young guys steps up enough to push Boyle to the extra forward spot the team would have a cohesive bottom six. Boyle just doesn’t fit the team’s style and he doesn’t win enough faceoffs or provide enough offense to overcome his limitations as I see it.

    At least we only have one more year of Boyle.

    I'm fine with Boyle for this season. And really his overall production was fine. Just needs to even it out over the entire season.

    It’s really hard for me to cheer against Boyle. He’s a fourth line center, nothing more, and he seems to be decent at it. And of course it’s hard to hate a cancer patient.

    Even leaving all that out his shootout winner on Lundqvist last year was one of the more memorable moments of last season.

    As usual you speak false narratives

    MBW has been awful, sorry if you can't see that.

    Carter Hart has been very good at every level so far.

    It's really easy to see, even the Philly fan, Speaking, should agree.

    I don’t know whether Carter Hart is the real deal or whether it’s Philly-fueled hot air.

    This is the Devils thread so to stay on topic, if you don't think Ray wouldn't deal Kink for Hart this second, don't know what else to say.

    one is 29 and UFA after the season
    one is 20 and team controlled for 7 more years

    but yes, totally the same thing

    You're missing the point though.

    The topic was rating goalies

    I rate Hart over Kink, today.

    How about offering an opinion instead of always looking for ways to discredit?

    Rating Hart over Kinkaid today may be justified, but it's not validated by a ton. He may be much better, he may be worse.

    I'm not saying make it a permanent move, but to shake things up every once in a while put him with our top two guns like at moments you sense your opponent is reeling or tired. And I don't think his puck handling skills would be an issue when you got Nico and Hall, plus you could also make sure Butcher is out there.

    Who’s cheering against him? He’s an older fourth line guy on a bubble team on a one year deal. In my OPINION (not a fact) he team would be better off with a young player who may develop further in the 4C role. Boyle would be perfect on a contending team and I’m sure everyone here wishes him good health and good fortune. If he was the kind of player who fit the system well you’d even want to extend him but the team gets faster every year and he will start slowly my down soon.
