    He's played in 3 career playoff games. He was pretty good down the stretch run for Boston last season when the games were more physical.

    There is literally zero to go off of. Joke of a comment to say that Donato won't be able to score 9+ playoff goals in his career.

    I'm not a huge donato fan but the takes in here smell.

    I don't crap on heinen at all. I'm actually one of his bigger supporters. So you're out in left field with this response.

    I gave it a B because I liked the idea but didn't know how it would play out- Coyle I felt was somewhat of a underperformer for the Wild and I did not know a lot about Johansson's game of late given that he had been injured so much. Turns out an A grade is warranted. Coyle is consistently better for us than I ever saw him play in a Wild uniform and a Mojo has some magic to him. Just what the team needed to be where they are.

    Summed up my thoughts perfectly.

    Coyle is slotted exactly where he should be, and has excelled as a result. The goals weren't really there for him in a Bruins sweater post trade in the regular season, but he was consistently one of the better players on the ice.

    Johansson obviously got injured for a bulk of the regular season post trade, but he's been phenomenal.

    “Sorry your spreadsheets say Mojo is a better player than Simmonds.”

    On what metric is Simmonds better than Johansson @Fenian24 ? The guy has been a shell of himself for a while now.

    I didnt vote... and going on the basis of rereading I admitted these werent the 2 guys I was calling for

    but like most moves the bruins make I said I trust it will work out... I supported the moves... I never once said im crying any tears over donato

    in the playoff hero thread I predicted coyle and said we would all be asking to extend him to a new contract before the playoffs were over

    I dont mind patting myself on the back even though I wasnt screaming for these guys. I did hope for the best and I had a feeling that a career under achiever like coyle might respons to a fresh start

    thats pretty consistent with how I always behave... I like giving underachiever and hometown boys a second chance... it doesnt always work but im almost always in favor of it

    ironically I traded for coyle in my fantasy sim team before he became a bruin... and then I traded him away lol... I build my sim team like I want the real bruins so its a bit ironic I had him and let him go
