    To be fair. I do think KK deserves a top 6 spot in the NHL. Kid is NHL ready, just hes buried badly on our roster. Feel kind of bad for him.

    I’ve wondered if KK can beat out Coburn, but probably risky in the playoffs. Probably need the vet presence especially with Serg in the top 4.

    Are you waiting for someone to point out the fact that you systematically accuse every player on our roster of being underrated?

    we have some players who are overrated

    as of late stamkos is becoming overrated, a few overrate kuch, vasi is a tad (no hes not the best goalie in the nhl @Hutton ), Johnson and palat get occasionally overrated, anyone who thinks sustr and budaj are nhl level is overrating them. not to mention our properly rated players like killorn and kunitz.

    Koekkoek is ready for full time NHL duty - no doubt. But we need the depth so we can't move Coburn yet. I'm guessing we move Coburn after the playoff run this summer ... we'll ask Coburn to submit his 16 teams and Yzerman will go to work. Masin is first pairing in the AHL right now ... so one long playoff run down in the AHL as the first pairing guy will have him ready for injury call-up duty next season.

    I'd be totally comfortable with Koekkoek as the third pairing LHD on this team. We have endured Carle and Garrison in the top 4 and made it work ... Koekkoek on the third pairing is a nice option to have. Serge is now cemented on the top 4 for the next 12 years.

    He was awesome too. But I don't expect him to jump back to that after sitting for a few months.

    Getting a bit of a Pronger vibe from Serg in his first playoff series. Pretty sure he's Public Enemy #1 on the Jersey bench after the last one. Jersey fans claim he said a not very nice thing to Boyle following their tussle, hence the credible death threat from Boyle at the end.

    What was supposedly said? And why do the lowly devils fan know it and not anyone else?

    Allegedly—and I've seen/heard zero proof as of yet—Serg might have brought Boyle's health into the fold. I'll just leave it at that. The claim is that the MSG+ feed picked up more of their conversation than the NBCSN feed.

    Maybe it's true, maybe it's not. I will say that the fine citizens of New Jersey are very accomplished rumor peddlers, as gossip is the official state pastime of New Jersey.

    What's wrong with it if he did? Isn't that what chirping is supposed to be, something that really pisses off the other player?

    I guess but some things are too much beyond hockey to be chirped about imo. But it's in the players' hands what they say and what they don't, it's not like the league is going to give fines for chirping. Kind of when Alex Burrows chirped Jordin Tootoo about his brother's death, yes, it does take your opponent out of their game but not something I'd do. But I have no idea what chirping is like in the NHL, maybe things like that are more common than I thought.

    I don't know, some things are still better left unsaid.

    I tend to agree. I guess it's a matter of sportsmanship, and some things being off-limits? It's brazen as hell, from a nineteen-year-old kid, I'll say that much. That's hard not to like.

    And in any event, if something like this breaks the unspoken honor code of hockey (if it even happened), I'm prepared to give a pass to an adrenalin-fueled teenager, in his first playoff series, who's just wrestled with a grown man in an arena full of hostile fans.

    FWIW, Boyle was kind of brushing the whole melee off after the game. He probably really enjoyed it, if we're being honest.

    I can see chirping a guy for his wife leaving him, ala Craig Janney but not if his wife dies like Dominic Moore. That's kinda where I draw the line. Boyle seems like he's beaten this cancer, I haven't followed his whole prognosis and everything but heard with the early detection he should be fine. So chirping him on it isn't too bad.

    The way I see it you don’t bring somebody’s family into it beyond the sort of generic crack about their mother/sister that everybody over a certain age just laughs off. Talking about someone’s sick or recently deceased relative is crossing the line IMO. But the player himself is fair game. So even if Serg did indeed make reference to Boyle’s recent cancer scare I don’t have a problem with it; however if he said anything about Boyle’s son then I do.
