9/20/14 | 7:32PM: St. Louis, asked about Boyle today, said “He is an experienced guy that has played at a high level in this league and in many high pressure situations. He is a battler and I know that when you think of Dan Boyle you think of his play with the puck but he is very effective without the puck and gets open and is able to control the pace of the game.” (Lohud, via Soundcloud)
He adds that Boyle is a “savvy” player who Tampa Bay hasn’t been able to replace since they traded him. (Lohud, via Soundcloud)
- “his presence on defense”
- “his poise”
- “how he controls the pace of the game”
- “he can move the puck with the best in the league.”
St. Louis added, “for me, I am glad and I was able to watch him quite a bit in the past 5-6 years playing out West, I would catch his games after our games and I have always been impressed with how he plays the game. When you have him on your team you appreciate what he does but when you get to watch him from a distance, you understand what he brings to the game and I am excited to work with him again.” (Rangers)
